I would like to know where do working mothers send their children (aged 9 and 13) to when they go to work? Do they leave them at home after school or they normally have full-time/part-time maids at home? I am currently working in my home country and both my kids are taken care by a full-time maid. I suppose I may not have the same luxury again when I move to Canada in the beginning... Can someone let me know what do working mothers normally do to their school-going children when they attend work? How much will it cost to hire a part-time maid in Vancouver?
