Becoming a stay-at-home parent will be a big adjustment for you – and for your partner. Be clear with each other about your individual expectations for how your roles will change: Will the at-home parent take on more of the chores? Will the working parent be in charge of cooking on the weekends? Can you agree on a budget that prioritizes your spending on one income? This isn’t a conversation to just have once, either – discuss any issues as they come up instead of letting problems get the best of you.
