Relieve the summer stresses
You could hear a pin drop. The out of offices are rolling in. It must be summer time. The infamous school holiday period is here and studies have been released to show its impact on working parents across the UK.
Hargreaves Lansdown have released analysis that states 60 per cent of children have working parents and the average cost of holiday care for those parents is £250 each.
The summer holidays are set-up to be a magical experience for children, placing pressure on parents to make them exciting. Exciting costs money. On average £624 each according to Post Office Money’s Parents’ Summer Spending report.
For those parents who don’t have the luxury of grandparents or potentially older siblings to care for their children this summer, the Independent has put together advice, offering parents solutions such as spreading their government funded childcare across the year and asking to work flexibly.
It is a legal right for employees to request to work flexibly and employers need legitimate grounds to refuse. For working parents, the possibility to work from home or flexible hours could relieve them of the stresses and costs of childcare.
