Having a Child: Financial Factors in Staying Home or Going Back to Work

It can be a tough call when deciding whether to go back to work or stay at home with your little bundle of joy after having a child. There are certainly the financial and long-term career aspects to consider, but it can be awfully hard to turn away from that sweet little pumpkin who is now such an integral part of your life.

Personally, my wife and I decided that one of us would be at home with our little one until he headed off to school. It was a choice that my wife and I made together, but not one we made without considering a multitude of various factors first. We reviewed how these factors would play not only into the raising of our child, but our future work and career paths as well.
