  • If extra money is what you are looking for, would you consider a home based business that you can do from home and around the kids schedule. I have a great business opportunity that i am involved with and make very good extra money... I would love to share it with you. Email me or call me.

  • Maybe by putting some fliers up or if you belong to a church just make people aware that you are wanting to watch kids during the day. I would say depending on your area, but I would pay around $5/hr. Cause the kids are going to want a snack or something, so that would help cover costs of that. Hope you have fun with it. It's lots of work, I have had 2 friends do it and only did it for a year. It got hard on them, they felt like they were spending so much time watching kids during the day, that when they left and had just their kids/hubby that they were so spent already they didn't want to really spend it with them. Good luck to you!! And if you think a home business might be something that would interest you, please feel free to check out my site. We help with enrollments as well. There is a rotator that rotates thru everyones URL.
