  • Try starting your own business. That's what I did. My kids are 1 and 2 and I have never sent them to a sitter. I stay home with them and work at the same time. I work with a wonderful company, Ameriplan. It has allowed me to be home and watch my kids grow AND support them.

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so blessed to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • You can try a home business, you could see if there are any part-time jobs locally and see if another mom in the same situation wants to do a babysitting swap with you.
    There are also some legit online jobs out there.
    homejobstop.com or just google for telecommute jobs add the type of work you are looking for. Don't look at the business opportunities sections if you want a job.
    There are some other GPT things you can do online to make small amounts of money. Let me know if you need any more ideas.

  • Hey i had that problem but before I did anything crazy I asked around and found out that a very distant friend of the family babysat for a friend of mine. I had put my daughter in daycare and for the first 5 months she was in the hospital 4 times for RODA VIRUS AND STAPH , AND REG VIRUS THE DEHYDRATED HER AND ALSO RSV. Make sure you know about the day care before you send her to one. I personally dont care for them because there are too many kids with too many sicknesses and no body takes care of them like we do. LOL For real word of mouth is the best way to find someone trustworthy. Its is hard to manage a house hold and work and children but put your faith in God and he will see you through all your trials.

  • Work at home opportunities. This is 100% free. You work when you want to work. All you need is a computer. Get paid to answer surveys / offers or test products (trials) for free. I usually make up to 1k per month. However you can make more depending on what time you have to dedicate to it. I have copies of my payments for proof of payment by request. Get paid by giftcards, visa's, check, money order, paypal, or RME. I have a GPT BIBLE website that will tell you how to do offers and much more. I highly suggest the following two sites. Email me for more information and any questions you may have.
