hiya im thinkin of either goin to college or work or do something now my eldest is at school and my youngest is 2 bt im nt sure whats the best option we use a nursey at the moment and it is £13.50 per session a session bein a mornin or aft and i wondered if a childminder woul be a cheaper option help ive looked everywhere on net 4 some info but i cant find any
try googling childcare link and do a search for your area. Cost depends on where you are in the country, im in the midlands and in my area its roughly about £2.75 to £3.00 an hour, most charge by the day, some by the hour hth.
I have afeeling its probably cheaper to use the nursery plus she already goes there on a thursday afternoon and loves it and she was quite hard to settle so i dont think moving her would be one of my better moves!!
im 26 but my concern is i have never done anything with my life apart from have 2 really ace kids thats why i dont know whether to go to college or just a part time job in a shop but i know i would only be working to pay for chilcare o how i wish i had some ambition before i had kids and i might have been able to walk back into a decent paid job and not have this stress!!
I'm 25, had my first dd at 17 so i kind of know what you mean about not knowing what i wanted to do before having my children but i had dd2 at 23 and decided i wanted to become a childminder so i started my own business at 24. You can do anything you want to do if you put your mind to it and yes you may end up working just pay childcare at the start but in the end if a career is what you want and it makes you happy then your children will be happy too iyswim?
I doubt even those who built up their career before having children "walk back into" a decent job, being a mum and working is hard.
My advice is don't work for the sake of working if you have the choice do something you really want to do and work towards a goal.
Whats that great advice i heard somewhere, something about "find something you enjoy doing then make it your living" or something like that.
Thanks 4 that i just think im a bit frightened of getting out there in the big bad world of adults really i think i been hiding behind my girls and using them as excuses not to go out and do something that i want to do!!! so my mission over the next few days is to give myself a good kick up the backside and make some decisions based on what i want to do !! i feel a bit empowered now thanks agin u have inspired me to stop whingeing about what i could have done with my life and to just bloomin well get on with it x
