Dangerous Combo!! Single Mom and Stay-at-Home for Child with Disabilities
September 26, 2008 10:06am CST
I'm a single mom and, due to my son's disabilities, I am a stay-at-home mom as well. As you can imagine, this isn't a very good combination for me. I've managed to survive for the past couple years, however, the situation just seems to be getting darker. I'm not romantically involved (would like to stand on my own two feet first before I bring someone else into the mix) so I can't rely on "him" to pick up the slack. So how does a mother in my position make money at home? I'm intelligent, gifted, hard-working and some other impressive words, but none of that seems to do me much good if I don't know where to find the money online. I've found plenty of nickle and dime sites, but I need a serious and reliable income(or as reliable as it can be in this economy). Any suggestions?

I have several sites that may interest you. If you love writing, join review stream. Here you get paid for writing reviews of products, movies, music, restaurants etc. This site is legit. I got paid already. Another site is workfromhomehq. This is a copy and paste site. It pays you 15 cents per approved or verified posting. If you love music, you can also join slicethepie. You also write reviews of music tracks here. Also got paid already by this site. Ebay is another site where you can earn alot. Also try checking out the site oDesk. I heard it offers alot of online jobs.

Wow ~ thanks so much for all the info! I'm excited to look into these. I did ebay in the past and was doing great, but the "finding items to sell" and all the photos' were becoming too time consuming. Would love to get back into it but need to rethink my approace! Thanks again for the sites!! Happy Lotting!

I will start by saying that I have no idea how you do it and are still sane! But, we do what we have to do to survive. I have a husband with a disability and 3 children so I have an idea what it's like to be a single parent and it's not easy. I am also a WAHM, wouldn't be able to do it any other way. I would be honored to show you what I do at home. I represent a solid, 23 yr old company and it's even growing in this unstable economy. Let me know if you'd like more information I promise you wont be disappointed! All the best!
