5 week prengant mom with a 2 year old wants a stay at home job

My name is Jen and I am a pregnant mother of a 2 year old and I currently work in a child care center. I am not happy at all and I am so stressed out and cry all the time now being pregnnat I can't handel my room right now and my chids fight all the time. It's not that I am a bad teacher, most teachers can not handel that room and my director knows I am pregnat and sees me crying all the time and does not say a word to me. I don't like it. We can't really afford another baby but we are going to keep it and I would love to have a job where I can stay home and make money. I would like something that its legit and doesn'tcost anything or cost very very little to start up.

    Get some job skills first. And then try to work from home. DO NOT buy into those work from home job schemes. They're all frauds. Make an honest living from home that is real.

  • Since you have daycare experience, why not do in home daycare? My sons daycare teacher did that and since I liked her so much, I went with her. She had her 2 and 2 others and cleared about $400/week ($200 a kid). She was very thoughtful in her business plan- had set hours, set vacation for herself, had a back up plan with another at home provider in case her kids were really ill- it worked great!

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). There is a company located outside of Chicago that matches up VAs & clients called VSI; the url is The owner is Tracey Wallace.
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. I work out of my home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly -Robin
