I have the opportunity of temporary promotion. Would mean about £500 more a month which is enormous for us as a family. It would be for 6 months to a year but would mean a longer commute each day meaning daughter (5) in breakfast club and after school club every day. She currently just does after school club. It would also be considerably more stressful. On the positive side it would be great experience and a good career move but I just wonder if life is too short? Wwyd?
If it's only temporary I'd say do it. I've just done the same but a permanent role and despite being a single parent I'm loving it. My two are older though as in almost in high school and in high school so can go home from school themselves. The extra money more than makes up for it!
I've done something similar and I'm struggling. Only 2 months left. 3 days to 5 days for extra 1.5k pcm. It's impacting on my mental health and marriage. Id still do it all again though as it's been for a particular housing project, and the children are happy.
