Work in the Eyes of a Child

"Mommy, i do not want money anymore.  Can you turn off the laptop so we can just play?"  How will you react to this request from your child?

Full time work at home moms tend to think that they will have more time with their kids if they work this way.  NO!  It is because full time office work and full time work at home work is still the same.  You have to work 8 hours still...  No less!

But of course WAHM has its perks and priviledges.  They have a lot more hugs and kisses as compared to those who work in the 'real world'.  They will have a peace of mind that their kids are safe - and no need to install a nanny camera.  When they wake up, they can work immediately - less 1 hour of preparation for office and another 1 hour travel time.

How can you tell your kid that you have to work and leave her with her nanny?  How can you explain to them that you cannot be disturbed when you work?  That she has to wait until you are finished with your work before you can play with her?

Kids nowadays are very smart.  They can understand well enough - moms just have to talk to them straight.  With this, they will see the value of work and money.

ZSPimentel is first and foremost a very proud mom to a 4year old girl. She is a co-owner of an outsourcing business, Hire a VA, that was put up together with 2 other female colleagues. She very is content with helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses by setting them free in doing menial tasks and assisting them in more ways they can imagine.
