I am a SAHM and exploring what work from home options you know of. I was thinking part-time. Whatever it is, I'd like to be able to pay my babysitter and then make a bit extra for myself. Babysitter is about $14 an hour.

I found a travel coordinator opportunity where you can work from home but I am concerned that it is too good to be true. As far as I can tell, the upfront costs are a $500 deposit that you pay towards a computer and headset. They say that is refundable. If I were to move forward with that opportunity, I guess I would check the BBB to make sure they are legit? Any advice about that one?

I was even toying with the idea of going to school to be a travel agent so I could have a home based travel agency. I'd have to do specialty travel or corporate travel. I already know it's hard to compete with online travel booking.

Maybe the most promising thing I've seen (on here I believe) is freelance writing.
I don't know what you did before having Little One but are there any roles you could do within that company ??? Might it be worth looking at going back to work then seeing if theres any option to work from home ???

Both my DDs ( in their 20s and 30s) can work some days from home in their roles which fits in with their families. Oldest DD has been with her company longest and can do 3 days a week from home.........and that means shes available for school runs, activities, at home when they are small etc. Even Youngest DD , who has been with her company less than 6 months has got one day a week if she wants it.
rinty, that's great for your daughters! I know you are in the UK otherwise I'd ask what companies those were. :)

I used to teach. I've been thinking about substitute teaching. I think it would be very challenging though and especially for not having to work out of necessity. The pay would be just enough for my son to attend a good daycare in the area. I'd really just be working for the experience of it.

Hi there,

My name is Keisha Copeland and I am a stay-at-home/work-at-home Mom as well. I have been doing this since 2006 when my daughter at the time was only a baby; and I did not trust daycare all. Now it has taken me years to find the right work-at-home niche per say with truly legitimate work. There is a very helpful site that I have used for a while and I still use it now actually. The site is http://www.realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com

This is a real site and all of the jobs are very legitimate. I work a job off that site right now and I am very happy with it. I am not someone trying to get a commission by recommending you to that site either. I want to see any work-at-parent find true legitimate jobs that help them out. You can reach out to me on Facebook anytime. You can find me there by my whole name, Keisha Jeanne' Sims Copeland. No joke, I really want to help.

I think this is a great idea. let us know how it works out for you. I would be hestitant about putting out $500 to get the job however. That would be my only concern. Just like I would never pay a headhunter to get me a job, the company wanting me would pay the fee. but I am old school and I realize that the job market is changing. I would love to do something from home as well once I retire. don't want to get bored! cj

I was surprised to see this thread was still alive! :) I plan to return to work later in the year. I just don't think I feel like totally changing gears and trying out a new field. Also helps that I have some leads on some quality childcare.
