This is significant because, for four decades, women's labor participation rates consistently climbed, from 40.8% in 1970 to 57.5% in 2000. The phenomenon caused profound changes in American family, culture, and economy. The shift in direction has some people wondering whether or not the sexual revolution at work is over and what may have caused the change.
Pocket Diapers. Pocket diapers are similar to AIOs but feature a built-in interior pocket, made out of a wicking material, that you stuff with an absorbent, reusable insert. Both kinds are single-use diapers, for which diaper service is not an option, so laundry adds up! They're the cloth diaper of choice for Odom, because they dry quickly, aren't too bulky beneath clothes, are more affordable some other options, and you can control the absorbency by how you stuff them.
Unfortunately, many moms feel powerless because they can’t find legitimate work-from-home opportunities and sometimes fall victim to Tupperware, handbag, cosmetics or other “parties” that usually charge you a lot of money up front to start selling and rarely result in the success you want.  Or, businesses that want you to pay thousands of dollars to get a “certificate in medical billing,” or “secret shopper” scams.  Certainly these can be completely legitimate, but all too often it ends up costing the person more money than they ever earn.
I have a play area in the basement where my office is at. I can have them safely play in the play area while I work at the computer. This way I don’t have to heavily supervise them, but I’m still there to monitor things. Sometimes I let my oldest play educational games on an iPad or I will let them watch cartoons. Sometimes I sit amongst them while they play and I work at the same time. – Christina | Raising Biracial Babies
I'm so scared that it will be overwhelming and I'll give up but I really want to do it. Is this too much as a first time mom along with learning everything else (baby wearing, sleeping, breast feeding/pumping, etc)? I'm already starting to feel overwhelmed and I wish I could have even more time at home with our baby to learn all of this and just be with her. :/
Swagbucks is for SAHMs that love to shop. In fact, it’s one of the most fun jobs for stay at home moms. Members earn points for every item purchased on over 1500 online shopping platforms, including Amazon. Rather than spending money, you can also earn points for taking surveys, watching videos, trying out various services, searching the Internet, and playing games. There’s even a mobile app so you can keep earning during your next parent-teacher conference.

Hi Alexa, I just want to thank you sincerely for this article – it was such a breath of relief for me (in a BIG way)! I own a small business and am due soon and was hoping for a way to seek out an at-home supplemental income but was only landing on continual scams (and that’s from someone who considers themself a thorough researcher). Again, I cannot thank you enough for all the legitimate links and sources (finally!). I’ll certainly be sharing this article.
I was a virtual assistant for awhile. I was in Real Estate but decided it wasn’t for me because I was out and never home. I decided to start a Real Estate Virtual Assistant business and let all my Real Estate friends know about it. I was hired by a property manager and did all the work at home and got some work from other agents but then they started getting greedy and tried to lower my prices or get free work from me. I was making $15 an hour from the property manager (I was only inputting receipts and I’d update the MLS listings or put in new listings for her and answer calls for her) but then she decided she wanted to pay me $30 per month to do what I was doing plus show the rentals to prospective tenants (showings could last up to an hour per person..sometimes she got non stop calls about some houses)and deposit all the rental money (that takes hours because there were several different banks she’d have to go to)….I said No way and decided that business wasn’t for me. It’s not really hard to get into but be tough and stick to your prices and don’t get your business from friends (like I did) because then they expect you to give them a break.
I am a JewerlyinCandles business owner. I sell 100% all-natural soy wax candles and tarts that are safe, has a beautiful patina look and burns cleanly in your home. Our products are some of the industry’s best, with bold scents and surprise jewelry in every candle and tart waiting to be discovered. At, the moment to join it’s $29.95 to have an ecommerce website just like mine but starting tomorrow on Sunday, April 19th to Wednesday, April 22nd you can join for as low as $1.00…and that’s how I actually started my business by simply paying a $1.00(doesn’t include a kit). There are no monthly website fees, no monthly quotas, etc..
One of the things you often hear from people who work-at-home full-time is the difficulty in finding balance. When your home becomes your office, you no longer have a clear line of separation so you never feel like you can truly shut your work down. From talking to these work-at-home, stay-at-home moms, I can only gather that this situation gets even harder when you add childcare, a third type of work, to your balancing act.

Work-from-home jobs for moms are available for moms with infants, those seeking supplemental income or a bit of extra pocket change, and those able to juggle more demanding at home careers for stay at home moms. The latter includes both part-time work for stay-at-home moms and full-time positions. Most jobs for stay-at-home moms offer exceptional work-life balance.
Beautiful and truthful hub. I am not a single mom, but I can relate a bit to your situation. Last year my husband was hurt in an accident at work, and lost his job due to permanent injury. Nothing has worked out well. It took a year for him to find a new job, and it pays almost 70% less than his last job. While he was recuperating, I had to stay home and care for him as well as my baby. Now we have both agreed that having me stay home full time with her is much more important than having two incomes. Yes, we are struggling, and backsliding. I do clean houses for extra cash, but its only a few days a month. The rest of my income comes from writing online. Just when I was ready to give up and go back to work, the horrible school shooting happened, and again we both decided that I would continue to stay home. I know it isn't the politically correct thing to do, but I commend you for choosing your daughter. We all have the rest of our lives to rise to the top, but babies grow up too fast.

This story is not uncommon, and believe me when I say it was a definitely a wonderful turn of events for me in the long run, but it was incredibly stressful to know that those maternity benefits were running out. Both times I ended up cutting my leave short because I started my job search early and was offered a position. Which for us, was a better alternative than going weeks without any income, especially after living on $20k for a year!


Hi Emily! yes that must be such a tough decision to make. It sounds like you have a great recipe for success for moving to a work at home situation with your background and experience. I always recommend that women stick with what they already know when making this transition. One option would be to look for companies that offer remote working for their employees, many do and many will if you ask. Alternately, you could start your own consulting business. Maybe there’s a specific need that you see in your line of work that you feel you could fill. I know it is scary to take that leap and leave your secure corporate job. In the end, I guess it comes down to which option is best for your family (and I am not saying there’s a ‘right’ answer here. It’s tough, so no guilt either way!) Kids having time with their parents is important, moms having the margin to love their kids well is important, putting a roof over your heads and food on the table is also crucial! I would also add that maybe you can think through changes you can make on the spending side to help offset the loss of income if you quit your job to work from home. In fact, you may actually save money by staying home simply by commuting less, having more time to cook rather than eat out, less childcare etc. I pray you’ll find just the right thing for you and your family Emily!
You may think working at home means you can skip child care, but you'll have days when you need help -- and that's okay. When Jonas was about 6 months old, O'Donnell hired a responsible high-school student to watch him two or three hours two days a week. The teenager charged half of what an adult sitter or day care would, and it meant O'Donnell could concentrate on answering e-mails and returning phone calls.
I worked as a nurse for 10 years but had to quit to stay home with my now 2 year old twins when they were 7 months old. My daughter had a seizure and it didn’t make sense to stay. I am glad there is a list like this. I stayed home and just spend time with my babies most of the last year and a half but recently in May started with Origami Owl as a way to have fun and spend time with other female adults. Later I joined Plexus just to get the discount myself and I have been doing amazing both in my wellness journey & making quite a bit of money off of it also. I am hoping to make it into a full time income before my kids go to kindergarten so when they go to school I don’t have to go back to work. I just don’t want to send them to daycare during the summers so unless I find a job as a school nurse I plan to stay home. Life is too short & they stay little for too short of a time to send them to daycare for someone else to raise them for me.
Great list Whitney! Another great option is Amazon FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) There are apps (like Profit Bandit) that will allow you to scan the barcodes of clearance items at local stores and know instantly if the item can be sold for a profit on Amazon. The beauty of FBA is you simply ship all of the items at once to Amazon and they handle picking, packing and shipping your items when they sell so you can get back to being a mom 🙂 I know three people that make a legitimate six-figure income doing this from home.
I can totally relate to your situation! It's rather deceiving when OSAP or any other loan money becomes your sole source of income. I was fortunate in that I had a part time job here in Ottawa while I went to school full time (60% course load). I am now having to make payments on my $30,000 worth of student loans and I still have 2.5 credits left to graduate. My husband makes too much money for me to qualify for any loans now, but the reality is, what he makes is just enough for our family to get by.. and nothing to save up to pay for the schooling I have left.

Every working parent dreams of being able to spend more time with their children, whether or not they love their careers. But is choosing to work from home the right choice for you? Could you manage to balance all the demands on your time? Would you lose too much of yourself? These are important questions to ask before jumping in with both feet. It isn’t easy, even if it can be enormously worth it!
This is quite a suggestive list. I am 32, turning 33 in Oct, and have 15 years in the Child Care field at a preschool, but would someday like to start working from home. As far as skills outside of Child Care as far as client relations & such, my other skills are crafting/bead making, professional organizing, and can type about maybe 50-60 wpm. Also was thinking of being an elderly companion, running errands, etc. Therefore I am wondering what I can really do from home with all this. I was thinking of creating some cards on vistaprint and just freelance as a Mother’s or Family Helper for those who have a rough time getting things done around the home, & who just don’t have the time of day whether it’s kids, relationships, family, etc. Would that make enough money providing I get a decent amount of clients? I am from south Florida just near Fort Lauderdale, so I’m just not sure. I know I don’t want to do child care forever, just cause it can be stressful at times. What do ya think? 🙂
I have a full-time job 30 ninutes from home and absolutely don't mind doing the extra laundry. I really do find it theraputic! I was every other day and have a stash of about 30 pocket/AIO's. I do have a couple flip covers and prefolds for if I really run low, but I haven't had to use a sposie in a LONG time. My daycare provider is also loving the cloth - she hasn't had a blow out or leak yet!
We have alot of our agents who sell Disney. If you want more information visit http://www.travelathome.com I am also happy to put you in touch with some of our agents who are doing it so you can ask them questions. I started out doing travel from home back in 1997. I started taking on other moms who wanted to work from home doing travel – I trained them and helped them. Then before I knew it I had over 150 agents! Now I have a full administrative team and I still work from home. We have a great group of agents and they always help one another out on our Facebook page. If you have questions I am happy to answer them.
You really need to look at the entire financial picture when considering staying at home. There were times when I worked part-time outside the home that I was putting gas and groceries on my credit card because I simply didn’t have enough money in my checking account to get me through till payday. I can tell you first-hand how awful that feeling is. I cried more often about not having enough money while I was working than after I started staying at home with my kids.
Please, can you let me know what your great online job is? I have been combing the internet for a legitimate job now for quite a while and I come up empty-handed most of the time. I am a fast typist (62 WPM), but have found that you need to either know how to translate or transcribe. I have a hearing problem, so sometimes it’s hard for me to understand what is being said in a recording, especially if the person talks fast. Thanks
There are some good jobs on this list, but I just want to warn others that some of the gigs on this list are very low paying. Some Fiverr sellers do very well, but the majority of gigs don’t earn more than $50 a month. Also, keep in mind that if you are writing 1,000 word articles for $25 each for bidding site clients, you will burn out because you’d have to write a ton of those to equal the wages you’d make at a minimum wage job. 

Great article, thanks. I’m a Mom of 4, now a hands-on Nanna. Pretty hard to get things done when your kids are small. When my oldest was being bullied at school I desperately needed money to pay for an alternative private school. So I became an ethical dog breeder. Twenty seven years on I’m still doing it and reckon it beats most other options out there hands down.
Let me first start out by saying that my heart goes out to you if you are a single parent who has little if any choice as to whether or not you can afford to be a stay at home parent. Sadly, with half of all marriages ending in divorce (many caused by disagreements over those little pieces of paper we refer to as "money"), my heart is going out to a lot of people.
Hmmmm I’m a work from home mom right now but there are a couple of these I’m going to try out! Why not make a few bucks while shopping and have the gas paid for? Or help someone out if I’m running around anyway? Plus we are a pet free home so the kids would love pet sitting once in a while. LOVE this list thanks mama!! =) hope some of these links work in Canada!!
Learning doesn’t only happen in a traditional classroom setting. Education is one of the most popular work-from-home jobs out there, allowing teachers and educators alike the opportunity to school students from anywhere in the country—and frankly, the world. For this full-time remote job, you’ll work one on one with students virtually offering math tutoring in geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, AP statistics, and so on via iPad and iPhone applications. You’ll need to have a bachelor’s degree and a current teaching license to apply for this position. 
I would also caution placing trust in work from home links, even from a reputable website because chances are, the person who wrote the article with the links to that website gets a commission if you join, or some sort of kickback. They are not telling you about these sites out of the goodness of their heart. Be smart and remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!
This is great, thank you! We are having our first little one in May and I’ll be staying home with the baby after that because it’s really important to both of us, and I’ve been looking for some legit opportunities to still be able to contribute to our income. This list is really helpful and definitely gives me hope that I can find something in a few months when we have a schedule again!
When our third child, Katie, was born a good friend who also used cloth diapers gave me a dozen contour diapers, some PUL covers and cloth wipes as a baby shower gift. These were the best cloth diapers I had tried so far. They were so easy to use and only leaked a little around the velcro when the diaper was soaked. We still had to use disposable diapers at night, but I thought I'd found the cloth diapering system for me! I was satisfied with this system and used it on our fourth child, Jonah, replacing diapers and covers as they wore out.
Before I had children I had always imagined that once I made the leap into motherhood I would continue to work. Once my first child was born everything changed. Not only did I have conflicted feelings about returning to work full-time, I was suddenly faced with paying exorbitant child care costs. I never considered the fact that I might not be able to afford to be a working mother. I didn’t have much earning potential at the time of my daughter’s birth and my paycheck was more or less the sum of the cost of daycare.
If you are interested, stop by. And if you, Alexa, would like to know more or would at least add a note to your list that single moms can earn a real, full time income in the adult industry – on their own, no need to get naked or do gross stuff. It’s hard work though and I also basically work full time – with the exception that I work whenever I want, so I always have time for the kids.

I was feeling discouraged, as I would soon join the ranks of the working mother after my precious maternity leave would expire, and although the idea of staying at home with my child was enticing, it was simply not an option.  I was the one with the steady job and even more importantly, the one who carried health insurance, flexible spending accounts, and other much needed resources.  I have so much respect for these overworked, undervalued mothers and working from home one day a week has taught me to empathize with how much effort being a full-time mom while trying to accomplish other tasks truly is.  That being said, there had to be answer to this cloth diapering and working conundrum.

My partner and I are getting married in 2 weeks! We have talked at length about this and I would love to stay home when we have kids. For now we are working on paying towards our house we bought a year ago and save. This is always difficult because he makes decent money but it gets lean in the winter. I have a career job, today if I had a child i would not take home much extra but the experience I am gaining is remarkable. Whenever I do become preg. we will look closely at our options and we are willing to make many changes.

Maybe you just want to get out of the house for a few hours to make some spending money, or get a discount at a store you shop at often. If that's the case, a part-time job in retail could be great for you. The pay isn't necessarily amazing and the job might not be particularly satisfying, but the flexibility and the you time you get could be exactly what you need.
I have since contacted Global Typing Assignments one of the companies mentioned here by one Rebecca.

Please refer to this so that you may establish their general terms of service.

You can start by going to your personal Facebook page and posting about the teething ring you like and telling your friends about it.  Then include your Amazon Associates link to the product.  If one of your friends buys the teething ring after clicking on your link, you get a percentage of the sale.  Your friend doesn’t pay any extra, and you make money.  Win-Win.  Oh, and if your friend clicks your link to the baby teething ring and gets distracted and ends up buying a new vacuum–you still get your commission even though that’s not what you linked to!  Awesome!

LOVE our cloth diapers! We use prefolds and Thirsties covers. The Velcro works best for us, because we do Elimination Communication, and it just makes the dipes that much easier to get off. My daughter started pooping on the potty very consistently at 6 months, so our cloth diapering experience has been a breeze. And it has been nice to get a break from them; our second baby is due any day, and yes, I am dreading all that extra laundry and keeping up with it, etc. We dry our cloth diapers out on the clothesline, so coordinating the fact that I can’t dry all the diapers plus a load of sheets is a little frustrating, but worth it. We will probably end up using the dryer for our clothes more than I would prefer for a while. But we aren’t going to start with the cloth diapers until I have breastfeeding all under control and settled; once we are good with that, then we will ditch the sposies. 🙂
Once you're ready to build your stash, you'll need a two to three dozen diapers or diaper-plus-insert sets for a newborn, according to Shannon Griffith, owner of Green Diaper Babies cloth diaper service in Chicago. (You'll need fewer as your baby gets older.) Cloth diapering is easier if you invest in some accessories: a diaper pail for storing the dirties before washing, a waterproof "wet bag" for stashing soiled diapers when you're on the go, disposable diaper liners, and a diaper sprayer for rinsing solid waste off diapers and into the toilet.
Hi. I am a 35 year old woman with extreme social phobia and anxiety. I have been working forever as a retail manager. I have great customer service skills and can type fairly well. I have been on short term disability for almost a year and it is going to be ending. I have no idea what I’m going to do, or how I will be able to pay my bills. I need a way to support myself by working at home without any of the scams or gimmicks. If there is anyone out there that could help me or knows of something, PLEASE let me know.
Cloth diapers aren't perfect, either: Laundering requires energy and water and introduces chemical detergents into the environment. And while cloth diaper services that pick up your dirties and drop off clean ones use less water than home washings by operating in bulk, they require gas-driven cars, contributing to air pollution. From an environmental perspective, neither option is perfect; go with the one that feels best to you.

I quickly discovered that being a full-time cloth diaperer and being a full-time employee didn't really conflict at all like the predecessors before me had ominously warned; the process just taught me better time-mangement skills.  I still had to do a load of CD-only laundry once every three days or so, and with the assistance of pail liners and the wet bags I sent with my daughter to daycare, it wasn't like I had piles of dirty diapers stinking up my house or diaper bag.  On the days it was time to do laundry, my schedule wasn't altered much.  I'd just throw everything into the washer with a scoop of Tiny Bubbles as soon as I'd get home from work, run the laundry, make dinner, and spend some quality time with the family before my daughter's bedtime.  Then, as my husband would begin getting my daughter ready for bed, I'd quickly throw the wet diapers in the dryer, hang the diaper shells and covers on the clothesline my hubby installed in our laundry closet, and be ready in time for a few stories and our nightly nursing session.  Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that continuing to breast feed is also manageable for the full-time working mother?  That's another story I suppose.
There are many costs associated with working outside the home, like work clothes, commuting expenses, daycare, formula if your returning to work would force you to stop breastfeeding, more frequent salon visits, more frequent car maintenance expenses, lunches, and  restaurant meals or take out for those nights you’re too exhausted from working to cook.

When our child in the late 90s, I worked the numbers again and again and simply could not find a way to stay home. I suppose we could have if, say, we sold the house and moved in with my FIL (who lives an hour away, and who might not have appreciated the intrusion), but DH, who is a man of few needs, stated there were certain levels of simplicity to which he would not go.
Great article! So many mom’s looking for this article. My family and I started taking Zija superfood (SmartMix/SuperMix) a couple years ago and the natural energy drink about 1 year ago.

Great company and our team is so inspirational and motivated. http://Www.jbconyer.myzija.com http://www.jbconyer.myameo.com

By this time I had more diapers than Zach needed, but loved creating them so much I couldn't stop. There were so many adorable fabrics just begging me to make them into a cloth diapers. I started trading my cloth diapers for other items so I could keep creating, and got rave reviews from the mamas who received my diapers. When my husband needed to go from full time to half time work so he could student teach I thought it was the perfect time to open my own cloth diapering business. I could share my love for cloth diapers, fulfill my need to create, and help out with the family finances too. Zany Zebra Designs was born! My goal for this business is to provide helpful information and high quality products so you will love using cloth diapers as much as I do!

Something that all of these calculators fail to look at is school expenses for the parents. I’m thirty-something (remember that show?), in college for the first time ever, and the proud papa of a school-aged child and a one year old. Not only do I lose money not working, but I then have to pay for daycare and after school stuff because I’m in school. Perhaps there should be a calculator that takes into account the soccer-mom running around (time/gas/wear), school costs not covered by federal money, and the need for things you can’t necessarily afford. Lawn care is an example of the last point. 12 class hours plus three hours of study per credit hour equals 48 hours devoted to school plus time spent driving. You can afford to mow yourself but there’s simply not time. Where’s the money for that, I wonder?
All-in-Ones (AIOs). No stuffing inserts here: AIOs provide both an absorbent layer and a waterproof outer shell all in one piece, so you can diaper your baby as normal then toss the whole thing in the laundry when it gets soiled. As a result, AIOs are exceptionally daddy/daycare/babysitter/grandparent-friendly, Odom says. (She likes the GroVia One-Size All in One.) They fasten at the hips with either Velcro or a series of snaps, like prefold covers.

Rachel, you’re right! Technically, cloth diapering is not “simpler” because it involves quite a lot of washing. But, like you, I’ve also found it to be definitely worth it (due to health factors, cost, and environmental impact, in that order). I played around with several kinds of diapers at first, but I now have a streamlined system that’s easy to use — really, once you get used to it, washing diapers becomes so routine that it’s really not much hassle!

I used cloth nappies quite a lot with my first baby, some of the time for my second and unfortunately hardly ever for my third. We used terry nappies with nice covers to go over them. I used disposables for days out. Even though I didn’t use them as much as intended, I must have saved a good deal of money and prevented many disposables ending up in landfill.
That in a nutshell is one of the main challenges to Canadian family life. The dual-income family has radically altered the way that we parent, and our children are in some ways the guinea pigs of a whole new way of being raised with often minimal parental involvement. Both parents may feel torn and guilty, but there are no easy answers to be found anywhere.
While I still would rather not work outside the home, I can see the benefits of my job. Beyond my salary and benefits (the benefits where I work are VERY good), I have provided a lot of stability for our family. DH has had a turbulent career, including six months of unemployment and working for years in an unstable job with threats of layoffs and a paycut. In addition, from age six months until kindergarten (and the summer after kindergarten) we were blessed with a daycare situation that provided a sort of “second family” for our child. We can no longer use the family because they moved, but we keep in touch. I’m unconvinced that daycare cannot, in fact, be beneficial to a child if you find the right situation.

There are many costs associated with working outside the home, like work clothes, commuting expenses, daycare, formula if your returning to work would force you to stop breastfeeding, more frequent salon visits, more frequent car maintenance expenses, lunches, and  restaurant meals or take out for those nights you’re too exhausted from working to cook.
“We were talking about our decision in this long-term framework, and a lot of other people were talking about it in terms of, ‘I bring home X, and childcare costs Y. If X is less than Y, then I’d be making less money than working.’ Having done these calculations, we weren’t even in the same ballpark with the amount of money we thought was at stake,” he says.

I found my company Norwex from a blog and absolutely love it. Using safe cleaning products is very important to me since I have two daughters I stay at home with. Norwex sells so many great products that radically reduce the use of chemicals in our homes. I love this company, the products, and how it allows me to make extra money for my family while staying home with my girls. I am so encouraged in this company, my goal is to eventually make enough for my husband to join my team and come home and work the business with me. – Justine at Norwex

"The idea of having her commute to our home office to do customer service didn't make sense," Akerson said. "It was sort of accidental that we hired a parent. It was a blessing to both of us that it was part-time though. Since the company was just starting out, we didn’t have the revenue to justify much in payroll yet, and as a mother of three, she did not want full-time work."
So for the moms out there who do all that but want or need to earn some cash, don't lose hope. There are some jobs out there that will allow you to do it all. Being a working mom isn't easy (and the same should be said for stay-at-home-moms), but with the right job that accommodates your schedule, it can be rewarding — for your family but, more importantly, for you.
Sort wet and poopy diapers. Wet diapers go in the hanging wet bag in the laundry room. Poopy diapers get sprayed and tossed in the pail next to the toilet until wash day. (*For some families, they send two different wet bags to daycare- one for poopy diapers and one for wet- this makes this step go by MUCH faster if they will accommodate you that way.*)
“Designing and making hang tags. If graphics are not your thing you can even purchase pre-designed hang tags online. Then you cut them out and use pretty ribbons, bakers twine, or lace to tie them off. Embellish with buttons and bling. These are especially popular closer to Christmas. But you can make them for all seasons. These sell well on eBay and Etsy as well.
Hi Patrick, thanks for the comment. You can start by looking in to some opportunities listed on this post. Then, you may want to set up a professional website for yourself to market your services. If you have experience in a particular field, you can start yourself to potential clients. If you don’t have any experience, you may want to do a few jobs for free to build up enough experience to improve your chances of getting hired. Good luck!
You want to know what the biggest expense of working is? Childcare costs. The rates vary from town to town, and it also depends on what kind of care you choose:  live-in nanny, nanny-share, home daycare, corporate daycare. The prices also vary for the age of the child (care for potty-trained kids is less expensive than it is for those still in diapers) and sometimes you can catch a slight break if you have more than one child in a particular program. I have yet to come across a two-for-one deal yet though, so don’t get your hopes too high.
Wow this is a well-done list! And I see all the time you put into it has paid off considering it has been shared over 50,000 times! Congrats to you! I personally like the virtual assistant idea. I have not done it, but I love the idea of it and I think it can be a great way for decent income if you find the right company. Just takes some time and effort to apply to some places if you want to make significant income. I was doing research on VA jobs and it looked like there are multiple companies available to get with. It kind of looked like the higher paying companies wanted a bit of experience though. Anyway, great article thanks!

It’s an all in one nutritional drink PACKED with super foods, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants…and it’s all natural! Contact me if you are ready to change your life too! My leader just made $1400 in her first 30 days!

So, you’ve just become a parent. Congratulations! Your prize is way too little sleep. Also, showers are now a luxury. Caring for a family is a wonderful thing, seriously, but it can make many things impractical – like a conventional 40-hour-a-week job. Especially when you’ve got an infant at home! Thanks to today’s technology and availability of remote work, however, keeping a job doesn’t have to be impossible – which is great, since single-income households are a privilege many of us can’t afford. And many people choose to work from home in order to enjoy their children’s younger years and avoid the high cost of daycare. 

I can hardly believe in big amounts earned in the net. There are people of course, who make millions, but they are as frequent as those in a real life. That means, that anyone can make it, but not everyone is able to. Alas, I do not have a brain able to squeese money out of the net, while my son made his 10000 usd in the net at the age of 18. So it is all so much individual! Just do not give up and always try new ways to apply your talants.

I have designed a template to help parents teach their children about God, to understand different activities that happen within the church i.e. baptism, to help them learn basic Bible verses, and a list of verses which can be utilized for different occurrences in life. I do not know how to market my “tool box” and I am interested on how I can get this item out and available to others. I also am interested in providing a service of giving advice to others. However, I am not sure how to even set up a platform for that. I am a SAHM with seven children ranging from one month to 20 years old; with the last three being age three and under. I am looking for advice and direction. We are currently surviving on my husband’s income, but I want to do more than survive I want to thrive.


While many of the stay-at-home moms I’ve met over the years followed their hearts when choosing to leave their jobs to raise their kids, new research out of the US argues that a recent increase in the number of stay-at-home moms isn’t because women have chosen to opt-out—it’s because there is nowhere for them to opt-in to, and the cost of childcare makes employment a wash.
