So i am wanting to relieve the stress of supporting our family off of my honey, but am feeling that my baby needs me more. I know its not pheasable, but would like to stay with the child for the first three years. I cant expect him to support three people by himself for that long. Are there any jbs i can pursue from home????

I want to be a stay at home mother, but it isn't monetarily possible in this day and age. Is there any help out there????

  • I've been a SAHM for 8 years and it's not easy and I'm still searching for ways to make money from home. But there are ways to cut back and economize. Whatever you have to do to stay home with that baby is worth it. You can't buy these precious years. Eat out less often, cut back on cell phones, internet, get rid of a vehicle or get a less expensive one, get hand me down clothes from friends, shop at Goodwill and yard sales ( I'm an expert at that, PM me if you want tips on finding great deals)buy generic groceries ( Aldi, Save a Lot)don't go on vacations, there are so many ways you can cut back if you sit down and prioritize what's really important. PM me if you want some tips!! I'll be glad to help!!

  • There aren't any data entry type jobs that arent scams, seriously I have looked. What I do is Avon. I know you probably don't think you will like selling products. I wasn't sure at first. But its really easy and a great way to meet new people. I'm just like you except My husband supports 4 of us. The extra money that my Avon business makes supplies groceries and SOMETIMES gas! LOL. Go to my online store click on Become a Representative to get more info. Did I mention that you can even do all of your selling online? If you have a question dont be afraid to PM me. Good Luck hun, I hope you get to stay home with that baby!

  • Could you possibly take a child for a working mother? It would provide in come and a playmate for your child. I also worked evenings and weekends when I did work and part time so my husband could be home with the kids and I could be there for them during the day. I agree with the statement that you need to make your priority to be with your baby when you feel the way you do. Lean times will be temporary and your time investment in your infant lasts a lifetime. If your husband is ok being the provider, go ahead and enjoy being a great wife, mommy and homemanager. I found out that's where my heart was and made it work. I have no regrets and continue to balance work and family but family is always number one!

  • 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 have been searching for a work at home job for the past two years. This has proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I've come across have been 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 lucky 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!

  • There aren't a lot of stay at home jobs. The ones that are out there are very competitive and typically not very flexible. It is very IMPORTANT that if you look in to doing a home based business that you determine what it is going to cost you up front and what it is going to cost you EACH MONTH. You want something where you can earn money not spend money. With that being said, every BUSINESS requires some investment and SOME reinvestment, but at a reasonable rate. Be very careful before you get into something. Come back and ask about particular companies and/or go to other networking sites and ask. Do a google and yahoo search on the company. All businesses involve selling in some way or another. If you are not selling products than you are selling a program. If your not selling either than it's probably a scam. I work from home and I've been networking online for many years. Good luck.
