A job that works around your kids schedule?

Does this job exist?
Im looking for a job that is kid friendly enough so i dont have to miss out on my childs life. Something that if my kid has a play I can go to it, i can be a field trip mom. i can have the same days off as them, get off to be home with them & also get them off to school.....
Am I dreaming? !!!
I want to help bring in money once my kids are off in school but to me my FAMILY IS #1!!!

  • Work in the school system. You can substitute teach, or work full or part time in the office or cafeteria. There are a lot of opportunities in the school system. Search your local school county online and see what things are available! Some of those positions require a training class during the summer. Usually just one day! Good luck!

  • Teacher. If you don't have a bachelor's degree then teacher's aide or full time substitute teacher. These jobs will allow you to get off when your kids get out of school, have off for summer, and have all of their holidays off too.

  • How about a home based business? You can work your business around your family. That is my number one reason for starting a business. I have missed out on a lot because of my job and want something different in life also. If you work for someone else you are always going to be trading your time for money.

  • Family is absolutely no.1 I have 3 kids and I am so glad to be able to stay home with them and not miss out on all those important events. I work from home, I love the company that I work with, and I get a real paycheck each month to help out with all the extra activities and vacations.
