Most moms (and dads!) have reservations about leaving their children to go back to work, whether after birth or an extended caregiver role. Luckily, we are living in a time where innovative technology and new corporate thinking has made it possible to have the best of both worlds. Below we’ve compiled a list of 10 work-at-home jobs for stay-at-home moms and dads looking to continue to stay home with their children.
All of these jobs allow moms, new and experienced, to continue working after a recent birth or opt back into the workforce after leaning out to care for their family.
While many work-at-home jobs marketed toward stay-at-home moms and dads are scams—for example, stuffing envelopes or rebate processing—the following jobs are 100 percent legitimate. Each of these positions are not only work-at-home jobs, but may also offer flexible schedules that will work around your life. Work-life balance, anyone?
Additionally, there’s a range of job options available, no matter your career level or education. Whether you’re looking for entry-level work or something requiring more experience, there is a job for all stay-at-home moms who want to work at home!
