I'm considering training but I would be really interested to know how people find the job, especially with children. And is it possible to do it part time?
Thank you smile

My friend is a social worker, she works directly with families and she has children of her own.
She gets death threats and stalked, but she has been a social worker for a while now and she has no plans on the quitting. She says it's worth it.

I used to be a social worker. It's very stressful. I had clients threaten me, both directly and indirectly. I haven't gone back since having my own children. I wouldn't recommend it to be honest.
