One of the biggest shocks to new parents is just how much being a parent COSTS. Forget all the furniture, the car seats, the designer diaper bags, the "Kiss Me, I've Been Changed Recently" onesie, all of it. Childcare is one of if not THE biggest cost. You will literally need 2 full incomes to support this ONE expense, and it'll be at the expense of other things you like, like eating nice food or driving something OTHER than a lime green Gremlin with one orange door.
Unless you're one of the lucky ones with a mom who is available 24/7 to help take care of your babies so you can work or to give you a break, you're probably struggling with the rising cost of childcare and after-school programs. I have two things to say to you: One, you are not alone, and Two, there is a way to get child care for free, and I'm going to tell you how to do it.
