I am a day nanny. I work 4 days a week for about 32+ hours a week. I babysit for someone else on the weekends and get another 5-12 hours. The money isn't great, but I get to have my son with me and he gets to play with other kids. I also take surveys online through reputable companies and make an extra $300 or so p/m.

It's definitely not for everyone. It's very boring and takes a lot of time to make money. But it is easy if you don't mind being bored and sitting in front of the pc.

I have too many random things going on. Ordered by actual cash in my pocket:
Vending machines (candy, snack, soda, and a few combos)
Leather-soled baby shoes
Blogs
Rental property
Staging homes for sale
Pretending to sell an MLM-company product

I actually do very little myself. I pay other people to fill the machines, sew the shoes, repair leaky faucets, and move the furniture. I do write my blogs myself, and I do all the legwork to get supplies/materials, tenants, clients, etc.

I'm a strong believer in diversification. But there was no way to become very diversified without outsourcing. I make less money, but I have more time, so it works for me.

I do web sites - web designing and web development for a living. It is easy and interesting. I work as and when I get projects. Previous to child birth I used to slog from even 6 am to 2am at work = I could take many work on shoulders. But after marriage and child birth my child doesnt allow sitting on computer as he wants it all for himself. So work and finding work - has drastically reduced. I should improve after my child goes to pre school.

My friend has told me about surveys. I think it is good to make money that way too.

Lots of interesting ideas, and some good ones I never would have thought of. More research for me!

I too think of same question over and over. As I am full time worker and get little time to spend with my kid.
There are so many options but I still don't know what to choose.
1-Make cupcake and sell.
2-have a baby shop.
3- Give tuition
4-Day Care center

is there any genuine online work from home for all parents who stay at home so that we could still earn while nurturing our kids!

I am also looking at ways of making money while spending more time with my son. I am thinking of starting a letting agent, I am still  doing research on that. I am also looking at online ways to make money.

it is a great subject. I am a mam for two kids.7 months and 2 years. I was HR and administration Manager.But when i got pregnant my doctor asked me to resign.so I did from then i am not working.

I am thinking to start a project related to kids. I have a lot of information about everything related to how to raise kids, teach music,.....i made a lot of researches,

I am not working, I stay home full time.  However, some ideas I've considered or done in the past:
childcare in my home
writing curricula for different grades
product tester
teaching a class in my home to homeschoolers

I would love to do translation jobs from home. Some of my friends use online translators (sending a text in a language and having translated to another language the next day). When it comes to applying though, i have no idea whether the company is reliable or not. They are just so many!

Same goes with online tuition: I've seen some websites where basically anyone can give lessons though Skype and have no training other than being bilingual. Some people charge nothing and some lower their prices so much that it's not worth doing it.

Are they really work I have seen many adds in internet. How much one can earn?? I am interested to know more about it.
Any technical skills required?
