Budgeting for baby care

What is share care?

For first-time parents who work full-time, leaving a baby with a caregiver 40 hours per week is inevitably nerve-wracking and guilt-inducing. Share care represents the best of both worlds; it reassures parents that they are providing their children with attentive, personal care that won’t break the bank, and it allows children to build relationships with other adults and kids in a safe, familiar environment. If you take the time to find share-care partners who have values like yours and are willing to compromise, what begins as a relationship of convenience could even end up being a lifelong friendship for you and your kids. And if you find yourself in a pinch, there are still plenty of teenagers out there who will be happy to help you out—as long as you don’t mind if they raid your fridge.
