The pros and cons of being a stay-at-home parent
According to the Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada (CCAAC), child care fees are typically the second highest cost to families next to housing.
Not only that, over 70 per cent of mothers are in the work force and yet there are only enough child care spaces for about 20 per cent of the families who need them.
Consider a single parent working at a job with minimum wage. The cost of child care far outweighs the income earned.
