Work at Home Mom

Working at home has it's ups and downs, and it's not for all of us. But I would, of course, say the positives of it outweigh the negatives. In fact, I've come up with 8 Reasons to Be a Work-at-Home Mom. Every WAHM works it out a little differently, but our reasons for working at home are more consistent.

OK, now that you've read the reasons, and you're all ready to give up the rat race (or maybe join it if you've been a stay-at-home mom). But here are a few other issues to mull--6 Drawbacks to Working at Home.

There are certainly pros and cons to working at home. It is important for Moms to have a solid reason why they want to work at home and to have a great plan to achieving success. Thanks for sharing :)

Good reminders here. I definitely have encountered all of those “cons” but remind myself that I’m lucky to have this option and be able to pick my kids up from school, exercise in the morning, do some laundry if necessary, etc. But, again, chores and friends and lack of motivation are all very important factors when deciding whether or not to become a WAHM or freelancer.
