Classy 97 Family Feud: Who Should Stay Home


From August 19, 2020

Liza,

My husband and I have agreed to keep our 11 and 9 year olds home and do remote learning this year. The problem is, who should quit their job and stay home with them? I make more money than my husband so it makes sense that I should keep working and he stay home with the boys. But, we agree that I’m more patient and probably a better “teacher” than he is. We’d be pretty secure on my salary alone, but it will be tight if we live on his. This is a really difficult decision for our family and any advice would be welcome.
Thanks,
Amy, Pocatello
