Hi aks09, kamadu, Pdesai and Thishi,
First of all thanks a lot for writing in and contributing your thoughts in this discussion. I m glad there are people who do take decisions like leaving their careers to look after their child or let me put it as people who willingly take a back step in their careers to be with their children. At the same time I do acknowledge those women who manage both work n children, it's not easy......Hats off to them. Everybody has their own priority in life and I think we should respect that.
I remember when I had decided to quit , people around me said that I was taking a wrong decision and this would probably be just a temp solution to my problem......but still I went ahead and quit becoz somewhere in my heart I knew that being with my daughter, seeing her grow everyday would give me immense pleasure and happiness. I am enjoying every moment with her, I just love dropping her off to school and picking her up taking her to the play area everyday, playing with her and yes sometimes she drives me crazy with her tantrums.......(the troublesome twos phase) but I just love that too....sometimes I feel I'm learning a new concept in parenting everyday!!!!
I do feel the need to do something.....but I m just waiting for the right time n opportunity. I keep looking out for home based jobs but sadly haven't yet come across a genuine one :-(......but my search won't stop here, I m sure there must be some suitable options for people like us and as and when I get to know something, I will def share it with you all.
take care and enjoy bringing up your tiny tots :-)
Hi Sandhya ...
Nice to see your reply .Am also searching in online for some home based jobs. I too will share if I found a suitable one.
Between, I came thru some data entry jobs online ... but looks like I cldn't get the correct link to chk it out further.
If you guys are interested then chk this one online. Not sure though how well it can be managed.
Nice to see that there are many out there hunting for work from home option. My daughter is 6 now, am currently working. I too am looking for work from home options so that i can spend quality time with my daughter.
Let me know if any of you have tried any of these sites.
