That means less interrupted time during TV, meal times and more!

3. Home Chef (Literally)
Most maids come with some form of cooking experience. If not, they are willing to put their hands to the wok and learn a recipe or two to cook for your family.
This means less outside (unhealthy) food, and less Grab food orders! Good on your stomach, and on your wallet!
4. Toy Cleanup Service
For some reason, little kids love to throw their toys all around as a sign of love. Parents like you are often left to clean up the mess of toys, plates, cups and whatever else those little tykes can get their hands on.
Let your helper come to your rescue! No longer are you at the mercy of loose lego bricks on the floor or stepping into puddles of goodness-knows-what.
5. Human Interaction with Your Child
We all know constant interactions with your child is good for their emotional development and social wellbeing. However, most parents do not have the luxury of staying back home 24/7 with your child after the 16 weeks of maternity leave.
Let your helper continuously interact with your child while you are at work, so they don’t fall behind in their emotional and social development!
6. No more infant care / child care fees!
You save on infant care and child care fees! These can range from $1500 and up, costing up to 3x of your maid’s average salary! And you do not get round the clock help that your maid provides!
Guess you got the better end of the deal!
7. Guaranteed on time pickup from kindergarten

Many parents end up arguing over who is responsible for picking up their kid, with last minute meetings and overtime work creeping up unexpectedly.
With your maid, you can be sure she is first in line to pick up your kid so he/she can be the first one safely home!
