Working Moms' Stress
This is a great approach: thinking about how to be supportive of one another. We can start out by respecting the hard work and effort that every parent puts into keeping his or her family healthy and happy.
On a practical level, how about starting a babysitting cooperative, involving dads and moms? By trading babysitting services with friends, busy working parents get enough support to actually get out together once in a while. The website babysittingcoop.com can help you get started with as few as four families working together on this project.
The advantages are that you'll strengthen your relationships with other families and get free babysitting: a win-win all around. By putting the careful effort in now to select families who are entrusted with caring for your kids, when a crisis arises, you'll already have a strong support system in place.
