It's stressful to find childcare with my uncertain work schedule

Being a mother to two (soon-to-be three) children under the age of 4 while working in a restaurant has been a challenge. Scheduling has always been as issue as a server often doesn’t receive a schedule until 2 or 3 days before it begins. This makes it difficult to find the childcare I need for my family. The only times I ever received a write up at work was when I couldn’t find care for my children. This has ultimately led to my losing my job on a couple of occasions. If we had advanced work schedule notice I wouldn’t have to stress every week to find last minute care.
