Balancing Caring for Child and Career
I have been a stay at home mom for 3 years and truly enjoy being actively involved in my childs life. I feel like one of the best gifts I can give my child is time, attention, and exposure to different things. While I've been fortunate to be home with my daughter this long, I'm feeling the financial pressure and need to secure income to help support my family. I'm also looking to learn about and be exposed to new career options. Ideally looking to find a remote job where I can earn decent money while still being home with my daughter. I'm educated and have a master's in social work, so I feel like I have a lot to offer but also looking to learn about remote jobs that are more "outside of the box". Primarily looking for things I can do in the evening's since my days are spent caring for my daughter. I'm really trying to create a lifestyle for myself where I can get back into the career world but still be able to primarily focus on the growth of my daughter and exposing her to new and fun things! Does that balance exist?
I would really like to hear about ways other stay at home parents have been able to find that balance without having to work a traditional job. I would truly appreciate any resources, tips, connections, and suggestions about remote jobs that pay well. I've done some searching, but I'm sure there's more out there and many opportunities I haven't come across. Ideally I'd like to find something making at least $20/hr that I can do from home. Thanks to those who are able to share whatever insight or knowledge you have :)
