In 2002, Wendy Chamberlin resigned her post as U.S. ambassador to Pakistan stating that "There are many people who can be an ambassador . . . but nobody else can be my daughters' mother." Do you share Chamberlin's parenting philosophy? Are you among the 87% of women with a child or children under the age of 12 working outside the home who would really rather spend more time at home than away from it? Perhaps you want a greater sense of balance between your home and work lives but don't know where to start. And of course, there's the sticky issue of money--can your family thrive without your income? The Smart Mom's Guide to Staying Home addresses in detail one of the most common fears that often prevents parents from shifting their full-time focus from the office to home: how not to sacrifice your standard of living when going from two incomes to one. Based on the philosophy that deprivation never worked for anyone, you will learn how your family can enjoy many of the riches they currently do and still prosper without missing a beat. With real-world, every day approaches to spending decisions, The Smart Mom's Guide to Staying Home provides 65 easy and simple ways to keep more of your family's money and make the money you have go further. From grocery shopping and eating out to fashion and feedback, The Smart Mom's Guide to Staying Home is a terrific resource for planning and achieving financial harmony, greater life balance and personal fulfillment. Christine Walker spent over a decade working in politics and business-to-business sales before making the jump to stay-at-home mom. Having made this challenging transition herself, she was inspired to help other parents who wanted to spend more time with their children. Christine lives in suburban Chicago with her husband and three young children, still amazed that she was able to find time to write this book.
