Professor of psychology at Arizona State University, Suniya S. Luthar, Ph.D., examined the work-life satisfaction in new mothers. Her research shows the most satisfied are those who wanted to go back to work and did, as well as those who wanted to stay at home and did. The study didn't address WAHMs, but she says from her own parenting experience, being a WAHM is “just not doable. It’s a distraction. One ear is always listening for them. The kid is looking for mom to feel safe…. You’re not going to get your work done properly, and you’ll end up being a mass of nerves and guilt.”
Thank you a lot for this amazing article. I am from Armenia but now I live in Russia. I have refused from my job to come to Russia and now I would like to gain a little money at home and bring up my son. Is it possible to earn money from Russia? What easy methods of gaining will you suggest me in order I could spend less efforts and time, staying more with my son?
I always imagined I’d stay home full-time, but when my daughter was about eight months old, I was bored out of my mind. Fortunately, I was asked to work p/t at a local college for a ten-week period, while someone was out for back surgery. Since this was supposed to be temporary, we hired a babysitter to care for our daughter at our house, while I was at work. The guy never ended up getting back surgery, but my temporary gig turned into something I’m still doing, almost six years later!
5. Salary: Just because you won’t have daycare costs to cover doesn’t mean you’re in the clear when it comes to the financial side of being a WAHM. Yes, you’ll also save money by not having to drive to work, pay to park, or buy lunch on the go. But a stay-at-home job may not pay what you’re used to — especially if you’re doing something like writing a book or starting a blog. While some “mompreneurs” make full-time salaries by blogging, writing, or consulting, it can take years to truly see a profit.
2. Email processing—Like envelope stuffing, you are not processing emails at all. You pay a starter fee in order to get information about how to set up a web page. You can pay an additional fee to have the company set up a web page for you. Then you are required to start running (and paying for) the same online ads that attracted you. Every time someone clicks on one and signs up, you are supposed to receive a commission.
We make and sell natural products, including magnesium lotion, herbal salves, lotion bars, herbal bath salts and we’ll soon be adding spice mixes and teas! Justyn at Real Traditions and Creative Christian Mama (A note from Shannon: The magnesium lotion is the first “natural deodorant” I’ve used that actually works! Plus, it helps me (and my kids) fall asleep when we’re having a restless night. It rocks!)
Work at Home Mom Revolution posts regularly about jobs that moms can do from home. Lisa Mills started the site in 2007 to help moms find the best resources out there. From freelance writing, to flex work to product ad service companies your can run form your home, Lisa keep moms updated on a variety of options. Lisa recently wrote  and published an ebook, which is available on Amazon.com, about starting a general transcription career from home. called Jump-Start Your Work at Home General Transcription Career: The Fast and Easy Way to Get Started!.  It’s filled with the tips and tricks she’s  learned (often the hard way) over her eight-plus year career in general transcription. Lisa herself is a work from home mom. She says “I’ve been working at home since I got my first computer back in the ’90s.  I’ve done a little bit of everything to make money from home, including selling on eBay, running an online used bookstore at Amazon.com, day trading stocks online, freelance writing, and publishing websites.”
- Work-from-home mothers and fathers share some perks with stay-home moms and dads, in that they have greater freedom to pick up sick kids from school (the joys of parenting!) and generally have an advantage in being able to prioritize family needs, from doctor appointments, to school plays, to everything in between (provided their employer does, indeed, enable this sort of flexibility).
Exchange student host—This isn't necessarily a job, but it is a way to bring some extra money into your household. Both international high school and college students come to America on exchange, and they stay with host families for as little as three months or as long as one year. You will need to have a fully furnished room for students and must be willing to welcome them into your family as if they were your own. A lot of SAHMs and their families enjoy the cultural experiences and enrichment that comes from hosting exchange students. You could also look at other hosting options, such as offering room and board to athletes or medical students in training.
For many millennial women, staying at home is both a desire and a convenience, but it's not about having your cake and eating it, too. Taking care of a child is a full-time job and these women add more work on top of it so they can do more than simply survive and subsist. Millennial women are rejecting the status-quo pigeonhole of “mother equals homemaker” and are finding value in both caring for their families and holding careers.

Single Moms Income was the very first blog I turned to and gave me the push to leave my day job by starting a blog. When I finally made the move and started my blog I followed the lead of other bloggers that said I needed to guest post. Alexa was awesome enough to allow me to provide my first guest post “How to save on your utility bill without cutting your usage”.
While skipping office drama (and drinks with co-workers) seems like a trip to Disneyland, one must not forget that the office can be an idea oasis. Your co-workers got their jobs for a reason. Many of them have great ideas and diverse perspectives. Without little side chats in the hallways or water cooler talks, it’s possible that moms who work solely at home miss out on key conversations that could spark their creativity. 
Very nice post – totally agree. I saw something on Pinterest recently that said if you don’t listen to your child telling you little stuff now, they won’t bother telling you the big stuff when they’re older – because it’s ALL big stuff to them. And as the mother of a child with a speech delay, every word is precious and I hang on every one of them.

If you can type well and have basic computer skills, you may enjoy being a work from home transcriptionist. Transcribe Me is an online company that offers moms a chance to make money transcribing audio files. These files are generally short in length and are required to be converted into text by typing out what is being said on them.  For other work from home transcription opportunities, check out this post.


Dog sitter—When pet owners travel out of town or work long hours, they often hire the services of dog sitters to make sure that their four-legged companions get some company and even a little exercise. As long as you and your kids love dogs and you are OK with welcoming them into your home, this could be a great earning opportunity. You will want to take a look at what is currently being charged in your area. Depending on your local market, you could charge $5.00 to $10.00 per day, per dog, for a visit to the owner's home or $25.00 or more per day if the dog is staying at your home.
Around this time, Blake also dropped her morning nap. I was holding on to it as long as I could. Although we still do “quiet rest time” most mornings I can no longer count on that hour and a half in the morning to get caught up on emails and ready for the day. So, as a result, I’ve added early morning work hours to the routine. A few days a week I get up at 4:45 and head to Starbucks. It may sound crazy but I’m actually kind of loving it… (more on this soon).
First off i wanted to say thank you …even more thank you to the single mom who brought great oppurtunity in my pathway. A little about my self i am 28 years old single parent. I was with my ex for ten years married for 5 of those years and have a beautiful son who is turning 5 very soon. I work and work and when things get super tight i get online and look for even more ways i can make money…and we all know why as mothers and as single dads we do this …for OUR LILONES…we will try anything because trying is better then the ultimate failure of not doing anything and our children suffering. I am so passionate and so pleased at my self and the people i work with because i can finally go on a site like this and not need to have to fight to read every link to find a way to get me out a situation ….Im not a saleperson..im a MOM who has finnaly made it work and i wanted to thank sites like this and others for helping so much ..god bless….. if anyone does want to know what i am talking you are most welcomed to email me …..its my personal email and i have no problem sharing it ….AnaisCReativeme@gmail.com…..i hope your struggles become no more and i know that if you had the oppurtunity to find something that could be so benifical to you and your lilones..you would at least invest in your self …have a great and wonderful day
It's important to line up your day carefully, with set "office" hours. How many hours do you hope to work that day? When will you return calls? What can you accomplish while your son or daughter is coloring in the next room? You'll get more done if you work smarter, not harder, says Christine Durst, a mom of two in Woodstock, Connecticut, and cofounder of ratracerebellion.com, a site that helps people find work-at-home jobs. That said, one of the best benefits of working at home is flexibility, especially if you are your own boss. If your son or daughter is fussing during your office hours and it's a beautiful day, it's okay to push assignments aside and go to the park. You can catch up on work later when your cutie has settled down.

Does anyone else here resent being asked about work-life balance? The context is that I'm a leader and one of the few women leaders in my company. I'm always being sent to panels and talking about this topic and I feel like my male colleagues never get this question. Any thoughts on how to address this? I feel like its perpetuating gender stereotypes but on the other hand, I get that the reason people ask this is they want to really know.
The FlexJobs database lists thousands of work-at-home jobs that offer stay-at-home moms the ability to work comfortably from a home office. And according to the FlexJobs survey of working parents in 2017, the ability to work flexibly is one of the top contributors to a healthy work-life balance. Below we’ve got 10 great work-at-home jobs for stay-at-home moms, along with their median annual salary from PayScale.
Same here. My daughter is almost 3 and my salary has doubled in that time. Had I made the choice to quit in the few paychecks after I came back I would have missed out on that huge increase. I know that might not be typical, but I’ve seen lots of coworker’s leave at the director level only to be hired back several years later 3-4 levels lower. That results in huge lifetime losses in income and years of missing investments in your 401k. Everyone needs to do what they think is right, but daycare is definitely not a woman only expense.
As mentioned, sometimes working while your kids are home is going to be unavoidable. I have all of my children out for 4.5 hours a day. Then they come home at different times throughout the afternoon. I do have to take 15 minutes or so in the morning to plan what they’ll do in the afternoon. I love busy bags. You can find SO many ideas on Pinterest. I’ve been swamped lately so I haven’t created any new ones, but I do have to find the time.
Entrepreneur—Mompreneur is a term that you may be familiar with. It refers to stay-at-home moms who become entrepreneurs and start their own in-home businesses. Doing so can effectively solve your dilemma of finding work-at-home mom jobs. You need to sit down and list and assess your abilities and interests. You could have a close friend help you out so that you don't overlook anything. Once you have made that list, look at what you could turn into marketable products or services. Here are some areas that you could consider:
Hi, I am a mother of four, as well as a security/safety officer and a small daycare provider.. I have a background in education (worked for local school for about 10yrs) as well as safety (security officer for about 6yrs and took on safety position as an additive about a year and a half ago.). I would really like to be at home with my kids more and with that being said I am interested in data entry or something similar to that…
In 2003, the Pew Research Center studied how broadband connections change online life. It found that just 12 percent of Americans, or 24 million people, had broadband internet in their homes at that time. Though that number might seems small now, it was up from 6 million people just 3 years earlier in 2000. The study showed those people spent less time working in offices and more time working from home. It found that one third of those with broadband telecommuted. While there was certainly no expectation that growth in telecommuting would keep pace with the growth in broadband, it did seem that a new era was dawning.
I stayed home as a freelancer from when my daughter was born to when she was just over 2 1/2 (and we added a 1 1/2 year old to the mix too haha!). When my oldest was 2 1/2, I put them in part-time daycare to allow me more time to freelance and to get the kids some extra interaction. It does get a bit harder as they get older (at least in my case). And now, good grief, they fight alllll the time. My oldest will be 4 in a week and my youngest is now 2 1/2! They go to an awesome church daycare five days a week 9am – 1pm and I work full-time but am able to work remotely the majority of the time. For right now, it’s a perfect scenario for our family.
Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work with companies such as CIOX Health, Lexicode, OS2-HCS, TrustHCS, Inovalon, Mckesson that hire their grads to work from home right out of the program.
I worked for six years after graduate school at a large corporation. I was too young to realize that while I was smart and capable, I was totally not aligned with the culture of the organization I was working at. Within two years of getting married I had my first child and couldn't wait for a "legitimate" excuse to leave my corporate job. When I look back on those days, I realize that I actually left because I didn't have the confidence or the maturity to figure out what I would really enjoy doing.
Childcare provider—You are already staying home with your kids, so why not welcome some other kids into your home in order to supplement your income? This is actually one of the most popular choices when it comes to jobs for moms at home. It does not take a lot to get started and you could charge an hourly rate in the range of $5.00 to $10.00 or a daily rate of $30.00 to $50.00. You will want to research the going rates in your community so that your fees are comparable. And you will also want to be sure to check your local laws and regulations to make sure that you are operating within them.

Ouch on childcare! Thanks for making me appreciate mine. It’s $180/wk for infants, and it dropped to $155/wk now that my little one is in the toddler room. It goes up a bit when she moves to the preschool classroom at age 3. But pretty darn affordable compared to your options. But the cost of living in outstate Minnesota is also much cheaper than that in Cambridge. 

The past few months have been been some of the most eventful of our lives. From welcoming our first child (ok, second if you count Frugal Hound) to buying our homestead property, Mr. Frugalwoods and I feel like we’ve been on a wonderful–yet chaotic–roller coaster of hectic-ness. Amid these changes–and largely because of them–I also made the decision to quit my full-time office job and become a work-at-home Mommywoods.
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!!
I’ve been a work at home mom—in some capacity—since my first son was born in 2010. When he was seven months old, I returned to my day job, working part-time. I was directing a business development team for a non-profit and—despite the boundaries I had tried to set by reeling back my schedule—people never had a problem calling me on my days off or afterhours. I couldn’t just “shut off,” so I was inevitably the mother pushing my son on the swing with a phone at my ear.

It seems some people took the opportunity to turn this wonderful article into a market campaign for themselves. I’m sorry to see that – but am wise enough to know it happens. Some of the replies are legitimate, trying to help other people who are interested in making money at home. Other replies are marketing their own at home business – pyramid style businesses. Thank you to Alexa for writing this and to many others that offered additional help in their reply. I work full time right now outside the home, but I need some extra income to help with some unexpected expenses that have come up. Thank you again – I hope all of you looking find/or have found something to help.
When all else fails, YouTube is your friend. To eliminate some of the screentime mom guilt, I make sure that whatever they watch is educational, like Magic School Bus and Wild Kratts for the big boys, and Barney for the younger ones. My 6 year old loves to watch cake decorating videos. I suppose that’s educational in its own way – maybe he’ll become a pastry chef!
As I am so fond of doing, I’ll leave you with a thought on how the dominant paradigms of our culture conspire to make us into endless consumers. In many ways, daycare is an example of how much we pay to work in this country. I sincerely wish we had free childcare programs for all families in the US, but, we do not. And so, families are left to grapple with an essentially no-win situation: lose an income by staying home or lose a lot of an income by paying for daycare.

Other things that you need to be wary of are micro-jobs (i.e., small jobs that don't take much time to complete). Although these can be legitimate, a lot of companies will require you to reach certain earning thresholds before they pay you. And it can take a very long time to reach those thresholds. You also need to be clear about your form of payment because you may not realize that you are getting paid in gift cards or bitcoins. Here are some other tips for avoiding stay-at-home mom job scams:
As I mentioned, now that I’m down to 2 hours of work time during the day, I’ve instituted a new system of early work hours. 3 days a week I wake up at 4:45, roll out of bed and head to Starbucks for a 2 hour work session. So far, so good. Although I don’t enjoy getting out of bed that early, it feels amazing to start the day on top of my inbox and ahead of the game rather than watching work pile up until nap time. My stress levels are down, my productivity is up and my after-dinner hours are now open to connect with my husband. You may not feel you need to leave the house but I do. It keeps me focused and since my daughter is still breastfeeding I can’t be in the house if she wakes up and expect to continue working.
I am a nurse and have telecommuted from home for 7 years. I worked full time until a year ago, and my company requires I have child care on days I work. I had to have several years of nursing experience in a hospital before I could land this work (for me it was ICU and Labor and Delivery). I earned certification as a managed care nurse and it gave me more options. Part-time is usually not an option in insurance, but I volunteered to learn every line of business we have, and when they created out first float pool position, it meant I was the best candidate to pilot it. I now cover people when they are off, work 4-8 days a month, and still telecommute.

As a front-end engineer, you’ll aid in the development of solutions that support consistent information architecture, taxonomies, visual standards, interaction patterns and use cases across multiple applications. In addition to reviewing designs and documenting front-end technical specifications, you’ll provide time estimates for the implementation of features/fixes. To land this full-time work-from-home job, you should have five-plus years of professional work experience as a user-interface developer of Rich Internet Applications, as well as experience coding rich, immersive interfaces using HTML5.

Now, don't get me wrong — there is nothing wrong with not joining Facebook if you absolutely are against it. You can certainly find work at home jobs without it by following blogs like this one, but Miranda made a great point that Facebook is an excellent resource that shouldn't be ignored unless you're just completely adamant that you want no part of Facebook.
I have only ever been a receptionist prior to having kids and have been out of the work force for almost 6 years. I desperately want to stay home, especially considering how much it costs for daycare these days, knowing I would have to pay out more than I could possibly make. I’m not good at sales, and I don’t feel too good at anything these days except for being a mom. You know how it goes your constantly on the go with one at school and one walking and climbing everywhere you never have time for yourself and when you get a minute to breathe your being told you have a full time job but it’s not work because you are not bringing in any money… So I guess is there anything out there that anyone can recommend for me to try from home? I’m no good at writing or blogging either, I’m actually not even on a computer much but even if I could make $20 a day something to contribute financially so I don’t feel so worthless right now. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated:).
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 was a single Mom and 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.
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

If the emotional side of things wasn’t compelling enough, the finances absolutely sealed the deal for us. As people who like to do our research extensively (some might say obsessively… ), while I was pregnant I researched every single daycare I could find in our area. I interrogated parents about nanny shares, home daycares, large daycares, small daycares… you name it, I read about it. And what I deduced is that daycare in the Boston area is equal parts expensive and competitive. A number of centers I called (while I was all of 3 months pregnant) were already filled up for the month I’d need Babywoods to start.
Hey y’all! I’m an independent consultant with Rodan and Fields, a premium skincare line that was started by the same doctors that created ProActive. I’m a stay at home mom and decided to join this business because everything is done online and they have a great business model! I devote a few hours a week to posting on social media, following up with potential clients and product training. If you are interested in earning $250, $500, or even more than $1000 a month I would love to share information about this business with you!
Fabulous. 🙂 I’m juggling lots of things like every mom is and needed that little bit of encouragement. I just went through the post again to try to tell you which was my favorite point, but I can’t figure out a favorite. I can tell you, however, on what I feel most convicted- being present. So many things are begging for my time and attention, but I need to keep in mind that the most important are my husband and my kids. So thanks for speakin’ some truth and know God is working through it! 🙂

Did I find this article useful? Yes, yes and a resounding yes!!! I happen to have a friend from Florida who has been bugging me about an online income opportunity because she knows I am a freelancer who earns through online jobs. But since we live worlds apart, I just didn’t know how to help her. I am definitely sharing this to her and I am checking some of the things listed here too for myself. Thanks Alexa!

Like many in the online writing field have noted, things have changed quite a bit over the past couple years (the easy days of eHow articles that made thousands are long gone!) Sometimes we're tempted to give up, as if so much has changed that there is no way to make enough money working part-time to meet your needs. I can hardly believe that only 18 months ago I made over $5,000 during a month that I worked only a few hours a week. Those were the days!

Are you currently employed in an office setting but would like to find a job working from home instead? Did you consider that you might be able to keep your current job and work from home? It is possible to make that happen. You will need to start out by assessing your job and identifying whether it is realistic for you to work from home. If it is, then you will need to convince your boss to get on board.

I am so relieved to here someone else confirm that some things are just a waste of time. I do not spend any time on Facebook and choose to focus my promotion between Pinterest and Twitter because those platforms have higher ROI for me anyway. I get frustrated every time someone tells me I have to be in facebook groups to make it as a blogger. P.S. I really enjoyed watching your pinning tactics. Thanks for sharing!
These last 2 years have brought me some incredible mountaintop moments, but they would be nothing without my family.  After writing about parenting a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to give some tips for working-at-home moms.  There’s a lot of parenting advice out there, but not very much for those of us who work from home–and while I don’t pretend to have it all figured out, I know it will help for us all to bounce ideas off of each other.
2. Think about how much time you want to devote to a work-at-home job. There are part-time and full-time telecommuting jobs out there, offering anywhere from five to 40+ hours per week. As a mom, your schedule is probably based on your kids' and childcare schedules, so it's important to think about how a job can fit with that too. How often do you want to work, or how much time do you actually have to give to a job? What hours are you available to work? Weekdays? Weekends? There are definitely telecommuting jobs to fit all sorts of schedules (and flexible schedule jobs too!), but if you know what you want/need ahead of time, it makes your search much easier and sets you up for long-term success.
