I dont know what I want to do (career). Advice?

Im 26. SAHM. I dont really feel "good" at anything except caring for my family & I love my "job".. but sadly this world is made for 2 income families so I know I will have to work, but what kind of job is out there that I may still be able to be a mom -- I want to be classmom, i want to participate in field trips. not ever miss dd school functions. ect.. MY #1 JOB IN LIFE IS MOM-WIFE!!!
DD is 3, so I have a few years until having to start work. What should I go to college for (wanting online college). Im very lost :(

  • What if I told you that I found a way to stay home and get paid? Would you be interested? I stay home with my 4 kids! I was feeling bad watching my husband try to support our family. So I found a 100% “GREEN” wellness company. I'm not saying I make millions, but I am contributing and I'm not letting strangers raise my kids or missing out on school functions. If you are motivated and serious, go to my website It doesn't hurt to look.

    God bless!

  • See if your community offers a Jobs Skill or employability program with aptitude tests. These tests can tell you what you are good at and will narrow your field search down. Try the Employment office and see if they offer something like that or a local college.

  • Just start out with your general education classes, because all majors require those classes in addition to the specific ones required for every major. Work from those!
