I am having the same issue before, the difference is I don't have a daughter. And I badly needed a job that is why I venture into an online course to become a VA.

Yeah no fun having anxiety. And people have no idea what it's like when they say " oh just drop her off at a daycare" go find something. Its so hard. I know .. I want to make money. But no one knows how it is having anxiety, never being away from my youngest, and having working at a daycare seeing how kids are treated. Then blaming myself for working with my oldest and she couldn't talk fully at that age and let a friend watch her and she was soooo mistreated. I'm not gonna be like " sorry you couldn't eat all day baby...mommy had to work" "sorry you broke your nose because the teachers didnt care" fk that. Anyone who argues with me is just irrelevant because my kids safety and heart comes first and if people can't accept or try to understand.. They are not here lol I'm not getting anymore of that crap.

@Dimples624 And who else is going to defend them, of course, us because they are our own kids, right? I hope you will find work at home very comfortable to you since you have kids that need more of your time.

My wife was a stay-at-hiome mom with our first child, but by the time our second child came along, she wanted to get out of the house and get a job. It was financially tough paying for daycare, but luckily my wife found a great job working for a chiropractor. She got lucky, but I know it's hard for many people to just find any job, let alone one they love. Good luck to you in finding something you are very passionate about!

@Dimples624 I was just in a car accident a week ago, and my back is still in a lot of pain, so this week I'm going to start going to a chiropractor to see if they can help me out. I went years ago when I had a pinched nerve in my neck, and they did amazing things to help relieve the pain!

Some people haven't found a job or career that they love because they never try anything new. They work in one or two fields their whole lives because they are afraid to try something different.

@Dimples624, it's better to go out and find what you want rather than waiting and praying for something to come along.

@Dimples624 You could always work in a child daycare so your baby could be there as well and you could look after her at the same time. Just a suggestion.

Thank you!!! I will have faith. Who ever said not praying about it...i don't even know if i wanna read the whole thing. Its been hard. It's hard finding a job i love and fighting through being out and doing new things with my anxiety but adding my 2yr old to the mix... Ive had bad experience with babysitters and working at a daycare. My babys not worth it. So yes i will pray i find a great job prefer at home if not then wait till God provides me the right place and person to actually care for my baby.thank you:)

Thank you! Yeah I have had a few jobs before and now that I have my two year old I have not had a job since I had her. And it's just a really hard Choice it's like a gamble that you make. And I would feel horrible and could not forgive myself if something happened whenever I already feel like I cannot trust anybody to watch her besides a couple of family members who obviously have a job in life of Their Own. Can I ask what you do by chance?

It'd be good if you can bring your kid to work, or work in a child care center. Some of my friends became teachers so they can work in the school as the kids are studying. To me, it's hard to put my kids in daycare center as we are together all the time too. Hope you'll get a job you like soon.

Yeah I dont know how single moms do it. Day care is so expensive . Some folks are lucky to have retired parents and whatnot who can help with this

Yes!!! I have worked at a daycare so I haven't seen some of the misfortunate situations that have occurred and I am just terrified of daycares. It is so hard to find a place let alone a person that you fully trust with your child. It's like I need to make money but do I want to take the chance of my child being hurt or mistreated and most of that money will go straight to the daycare as well. I would feel better if she was closer to 4 or to the point where she could tell me what was wrong. I have seen babies and toddlers cry and it's like they know they are at a spot that they are not happy with and sometimes the parents just think that the kid doesn't want to stay but there's a reason why they are kicking and screaming and crying. It is so sad. It's so hard

Maybe you could do some freelance work and work from home. Have you tried Upwork? There are many jobs posted daily if you have the skills.
