  • That is something only you can decide. If you can afford to stay home then go for it. Maybe just work part time? Do you have a friend or family member willing to help if you do go back?

  • When I was working I worked in the evenings when my husband and friends could watch my child. It wasn't always easy because my husband is always on call, so I went to school at the same time so I could stay at home full time. It's all about doing what you have too to make enough to stay at home.

  • I work part time. My husband works a normal 8-4 during the day M-F. I go to work once he gets off of work. That way, our DD is always with one of us.

    Only you can decide whether or not you want to go back to work.

  • Hi! I make my living by working online as I am a disabled person. There are several freelance websites that post freelance data entry jobs. Avoid responding to ads that do not list a company name or contact information. There are many reputable freelance work forums that can provide you with work at home data entry job listings. The forums are usually free to join and provide trustworthy information. Once you have found an advertisement for a work at home data entry job, check out the company by visiting their website. You can also do an online search using the company name and visit the Better Business Bureau website to see if they have been listed as a fraudulent company.
