Help! We’re Drowning!
Every single day we hear a new study or stat echoing from the ether, that reiterates the crushing theme of families suffering trying to manage work/childcare/school and life in general. The latest stats are always a humbling part of the story. My particular favorite (insert eyeroll here) focuses on the massive number of women, who now opt out of the labor force because there aren’t solutions to help with childcare needs.
For many, it’s no longer a decision about how to maintain this fragile balance of education, home care, and extracurricular activities, but whether or not it’s even remotely sustainable to do so!
Sadly for most, the answer seems to be a resounding NO.
1 in 4 women have left or are changing jobs because of the lack of childcare options. 865,000 women in September alone have given up their job, their careers, and income because the current reality is unsustainable. (McKinsey:https://womenintheworkplace.com/). Care options are in flux due to recent rises in pandemic cases, the difficulty of ensuring children are engaged in activities becomes even more onerous. Not to mention the logistical nightmare of finding, registering, managing and paying for them just to maintain a sense of normalcy.
We’re all drowning and in desperate need of substantial conversation and creative solutions.
This is an opportunity to fix our broken system and create positive and long lasting change!
