By Linda BellPublished July 25, 2018Personal FinanceFOXBusiness

Childcare is expensive, just ask any parent.  A survey by Care.com says childcare is not affordable for 7 out of 10 American families. One in three families are also spending 20% or more of their household income on childcare. Kerri Swope, vice president of Care.com Homepay says the inability to afford childcare is affecting families in various ways. Parents say they are saving less money and making major budget cuts. Some are choosing to wait longer to have kids. Couples are also experiencing tension in their relationship. Swope highlights four things parents can do to ease the stress and the sticker shock.

Here is a quick way to selflessly love your child if you claim The Name.

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine.

They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. (Titus 2:1-6)

Trouble is, finding a “Christian” Church that actually teaches, let alone lives, sound doctrine is almost next to impossible. After all, there appears no longer to be any older women teaching the younger women to love their husbands and be busy at home.

How about skipping the $3 latter in order to actually stay home with your child? Gesh, talk about a lost, thrown-away generation of children!


Have to agree with point #4, Speak to your employer.

Yes, indeedie, speak to God for the wisdom, support and faith with love to stay home with your child. Raising and protecting them from the corrupted public schools, thoroughly corrupted legal system and flat-out abusive planned parenthood.

Yes, most assuredly talk to your employer about the soul of your child.

But women will be saved through childbearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety. (1 Timothy 2:15)

Swope says more companies are seeing the need to incorporate family-friendly benefits to recruit and retain talent. If your nanny is sick or on vacation, backup childcare assistance may be available. Instead of working full-time, your employer may offer flexible work arrangements and the ability to work remotely or part-time.  Some employers have also established affinity groups for parents dealing with the same experiences.
