Work At Home Moms: 12 Strategies For Success When The Kids Come Home

A mom is torn between choosing her family or her career. More often than not, career women feel guilty about staying at home for several reasons including her desire to fulfill her career ambition. She may have made the choice to stay home but she feels that she needs to do her part in supporting the family financially. Even though many mothers have found a solution in working at an internet job that is homebased, they are still faced with this question–should a mom work at home at a full time or part time job?

1) A secretarial service. The beauty of the Internet, is that you can work for people not just locally, but all over the world. That is a very big and busy market. You could provide things like resumes (CV”s ) for people. All you need is a template and the customers personal information so you can enter it. You can get suitable resume templates on the Internet and provide this type of service. One lady I know provides a transcribing service for many Legal offices around the country. The information is recorded on a file by the customer, and you receive it and type out the information for them in written form. Then send it back to them. Typically you can charge $20 per letter and that is cheap. If your typing skills are up to par and you don’t type with two fingers (like me 🙂 you could do 2 an hour.

But let’s look at another simple fact of life, there is virtually no way a worker at a daycare center can love your child as much as you do. Even if they could love them in the same way you do, the ratio of caretakers to children in most daycare centers are four or five to one. Even the most dedicated, compassionate worker simply doesn’t have time to give as much individual attention as is sometimes needed.

Build the bond between you and the child. By #capitaloneventure,the stay at home parent will be the carer as well as their teacher. This should be an opportunity for the parent to impart to the child mind the true meaning of love in a family.

Cooking – Going to a restaurant may be a cliche but cooking together just shows how much you care for one another. One can cook or you can both do it together. Be original too. Make something fun, different, and maybe sit on the floor instead of the table.

Yoga or Working Out – This is far from being a traditional date but staying mentally and physically healthy together is a great pastime and will make you feel closer to your partner.

It is really needed to stretch the muscles everyday for them to activate as well so that they can function well throughout the day. Aside from having an exercises, what can best help a person to lose weight or to maintain his body is the choice of food. We do not have to be so picky of the food we eat, we just need to make sure that we get some nutrients on whatever food we take in. Avoiding unhealthy food such as those which are high in cholesterol, fats and acid are never good for the body. Eating in a minimal amount is advisable also. Not too less nor too much food but just the right amount.

There are plenty of other options with traditional things, but the internet gives you the best option for success. You will also come across more work at home stuff that I haven’t listed, but I consider the above to be the best of the bunch and your best chance for success. If your goal is to be a stay at home mom, then stay focused on your goal and never give up!
