on the first day of training, which was to be from 230-730pm, i had to basically neglect my kids and lock myself in the computer room so i could have some silence and concentrate at the webinar. my mom came around 4, but when i had a small break she said she had things to do the rest of the week and wouldnt be able to come over and help. so i was left with 2 options- work anyway and just let them do whatever they want while i neglect them from the computer room (they're babies too, not old enough to be unsupervised for 5 hours) or quit. i thought about daycare but it would be 390 a week and i wouldnt even make that much since its part time. le sigh... :( how did you other mamas that said you work from home do it?

I know how you feel. I had a wah opportunity through Arise a few years ago and I also had to quit during training week because of similar situations. Have you considered getting a babysitter for during your training and then work in the late evenings or during nap times?

So sorry this one didn't work out. That's not to say you won't find another opportunity later on. Maybe when the kids are a little bigger or in preschool. I know that sucks if you need $$ now. Maybe you can earn $ another way by doing dog walking/ pet sitting, cleaning or running errands for the home-bound, or home health aide type stuff, or even babysitting in your own home. GL
