Work from Home Mums: Trend or Necessity?

By Angel | September 6, 2010 6:54 am |

Working from home mums … it sounds ideal and seems to be the best decision when a mum wants to stay independent and see how her children grow. But just like everything else, working from home has both its advantages and disadvantages. Here they are:



  • freedom and flexibility

You are welcome to tail your day according to your needs, whether you want to spend time with the kids, or simply work.

  • tax benefits

When you work from home you can work tax free.

  • stress

Work from home is less stressful because you don’t have a boss, there is no need to get up early and correspond to any dress-code or company rules.

  • family

You can spend a lot of time with your family.

  • money

You can easily save money on clothes and patrol.


  • family

When you have children and they come home from school they will like to spend some time with you but you can be more productive around that time.

  • money

When you work freelance there is no constant flow of money.

  • social contacts

Be ready to the absence of the social interaction. I am ready to bet you will be cut off from the rest of the world.

  • self-discipline

It will be really difficult to motivate yourself when you’re working from home.

Despite all the disadvantages working from home is still a perfect way out when you have small children and would like to devote most of your time to them! Find more information at
