  • You could take a look at and I got my 2 part time jobs there. You will see jobs for childcare, senior care, pet care, housekeeping and house sitting, etc. You search by zipcode. GL!

  • Child care, retail sales, front desk reception... part time can give you tons of flexibility so having time for the family isn't actually as big a concern as finding something you like and can do.

  • I work as a sub teacher. Check with you school district about subbing. I love it . I can pick schools where I would like to work, which classroom and the hours. I have weekends and nights off. But the pay stinks

  • Do you have any office experience? You might be able to find a job as a receptionist or office assistant, date entry or customer service. Look at local job boards and with temp agencies.

  • I work around my family from home! Several years ago, I made the decision i wanted to be home with my kids, but we needed the income coming in financially! I don't have to worry about the balance of working outside the home anymore! I work right along side my 3 kids, and I'm able to cook, clean and kiss them goodnight! It's the best!
