Stay at home mom.

Anonymous

I’m 22 and a SAHM to a 2 year old and one on the way. My boyfriend is the one that goes to work and I can tell he is very stressed out. He thinks I have no motivation to go to work or school, but I’m just one of those parents that is very paranoid to take their child to a daycare. Any good stay at home jobs? I want to help out with financial stuff but I also like staying home with my little one.

    I baby sit other kids and do online surveys. Holiday season I pick up part time jobs for thanksgiving/Christmas.

    Transcribing or proofreading are both jobs you can do from home with little to no upfront cost. You can also check into virtual assistant work. If you have the means, I'd recommend checking out Work at Home School from Caitlyn Pyle. I'm currently enrolled and just launched my work at home business about 2 weeks ago. Right now I'm only running a blog which doesn't generate any revenue yet, but as I get more established i intend to add products and services for a price. I will caution you though, working at home with littles is not as easy as it seems. You still may end up having to use child care of some sort so you can focus without interruption. But it is definitely super flexible! If you really want to do it then go for it! There are more and more options available every day 🙂

    I am almost 21 with a toddler and one on the way. I work as a nanny, and bring my little one with me. Not sure what is happening once the second one comes! But I also do school online. Because my husband and I are both in school we are taking out loans, so that is how I help out. I got very bored when all I did was stay at home, I loved it, but got bored. I don’t want my baby in daycare at all. And am so thankful I am able to stay with her. But I also have to remember my job is being at home, doing EVERYTHING. We looked at how much it would cost to put our baby in good child care and it would cost more than anything I could make now. It’s not worth it, so make sure if you do get a job you are making enough to make it worth not having that time with your baby. Because it really does matter. Hope this helps! Good luck:)

    I recently resigned from my job at the daycare in order to be home with my 3 year old and 4 month old, they pay daycare teachers next to nothing and even though I got a discount the cost of daycare for two kids was not worth it, I now stay home with my kids during the day and go drive Uber at night when my husband gets home from work, it’s fun, good money & allows me to be at home with my kids during the day! I recommend that or “Shipt” or “door dash” if u have a vehicle :)

    I baby sit. You can try working nights or weekends if your boyfriend is home to watch the baby. My sister is a sahm too and she works at a theater nights from 7-1. I worked at a daycare briefly before college and I understand why you don’t want to leave your baby there.
