Are there any legit jobs for sahms?

I am a proud mama of three wonderful children. I love them with all my heart, but it is so hard to find a job that lets me be around my babies. I refuse to put them in daycare because I worked at a few and I will not put them through that. In this world, it's hard to trust anyone so therefore I will not ask anyone to babysit for me. I am in desperate need of a job right now and would really prefer to work from home. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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). For more information, go to
    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. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching; additionally, I handle the business end of my spouse's business, and do medical billing and coding one day a week for one of my bookkeep
