Do not give up your job to become a caregiver.
I think we need this discussion thread as a permanent, ongoing topic. Too many folks come here with the question " how do I get paid..."
I think folks need to understand that as a general rule, this is a terrible idea. I think it's Garden Artist and Freqflyer who have the stats on what is lost in terms of retirement. We need folks to weigh in on " no, it's not the same as staying home with a 3 year old".
