Being a stay-at-home parent demonstrates your devotion to your children. But kids aren’t awake 24/7. If you have childcare, school family and friends, they won’t be home 24/7 either.

There are gaps, breaks—sometimes for hours. And this is where stay-at- home parents can make money by working remotely.

 


What you need to work from home

To earn money at home, you’ll need to be organized, have the ability to make a plan and the discipline to stick to it.

For some work, you also will need a dedicated space to do the job, free from interruptions.

If you’ve been a parent for any time, you already have developed these skills to take care of the children and run the household. Now is the time to turn those abilities toward making money.
