There are jobs you can get working on line. I work for a food/restaurant from home. There are lists of companies that are now starting to do it as well. I live in Canada, but there are a lot more opportunities ithe States. I think there is a company called Arise, and they have clients you can work for. Look them up. Hotels are now starting to do it as well. I did it for similar reasons. I wanted to stay at home with them, be able to do things with them, and make money too! I work nights when they are sleeping, because in the winter time my husband is on call, so I may be here by myself with the kids. It is great, tiring at times, but the kids are only young once! I can work during the day when all of them are in school. Good luck in finding something that works!

I have a 15 month old, 8 yr old and a 7 yr old - I work when I want and take them with me as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant. It only cost $75 to get started and the products are wonderful. You make 50% of the product sales and once you get someone to try them they want to get them. Women always take care of their skin and makeup no matter how bad the economy gets so you'll always have customers - it's a fun way to make a living : ) Let me know if you're interested in learning more. Good Luck! Oh, and I'm not trying to solicit you, I am just sharing what I did in because there was no way I was sending my infant into a daycare around here and I have no family near to help out. If you do want to try what I am doing I can either help you or I am sure there are people in your area that can. Again, Good Luck! Wish you the best : )

Jobs that allow one to bring their child are almost non-existent in this country. There are companies that have day care centers within the company itself where a parent can visit their child during the work day, but those are also rare.

I am not certain if your issue is TRUST or economical as you do not say. If it is an issue of TRUST, then it is you who needs to examine your FEAR :
F alse
E vidence
A ppearing
R eal and be willing to examine alternatives to your desire.
Your child looks to be at least 1 year old, if not older. Consider asking neighbors if they know of reliable child care services or check through the county government where you live. If you MUST work you will have to let go of your fear and allow the child to be cared for in your absence.

try a daycare. many times they will allow you to bring your child. also, consider babysitting in your own home. i did that for years and made great money. i stayed home, still got laundry done and spent time with my own kids, all the while watching other people's kids and getting paid!

You could try Thecare.com and Sittercity.com for nanny jobs. I opened my home preschool years before I had kids, in 1996. (My oldest was born in 2001) It's a great way to stay home, and work, too. I had some kids over the years with late-night schedules (like airline jobs), infants, older kids where you could pick them up after school would work, too. Sometimes, you can place flyers at schools, local bulletin boards at grocery stores, ads in local papers, Craig's List, and apply at those web sites I mentioned. Some are free, some aren't, but it's a tax write-off if you do start watching some kids.

Yes; many nanny jobs will allow you to bring your child along with you to the job. At Nannies4hire.com, many nannies list profiles and search for nanny jobs.

Our district lets the driver have their children on in the seat right behind the driver. They even put in special belts for their carseats.

Most school board areas, if not all here in Canada allow you to take your child with you on the school bus. There are special straps to attach your child's car seat to the bench behind the driver. I know a lot of people who have taken their child(ren) on the bus with them. I was going to do it too, but I was not going to get my sons route making it impossible to get him to school on time, or not rely on some else to take him to school.

Ok- I work for a school district... you can't let your child drive around with you on the bus, especially a toddler.

After getting my nursing degree and then having a baby I decided I did not want to be away from my son and now my 5 kids. I started doing unlicensed daycare according to our county guidelines which means I can have only one non-related family. I have had the same family for over 5 years and I love it. I am very flexible which is great for their mom who is a nurse at a hospital and her hours can change at a moments notice and their dad works 12 hour shifts. I also homeschool my kids so their kids will do "school" too along with mine. They have workbooks to color in. Our kids are best friends and their mom is one of my closest friends now.

Maybe at your local YMCA. They usually only offer limited child care for employees (up to 3 hrs I believe) but you may be able to work out a payment arrangement for additional hours if necessary. Also, I used to live in Rockville, MD and their rec center may be a place to look into for employment in the child care field. Good luck!

When you apply for a job they will conduct a background check. MOST daycares will hire you with just that, and then will give you an opportunity to obtain a CDA or other creditials in early childhood that you may be interested in. The last job I had in a preschool paid for me to get my background check and to further my education.

You can work at a daycare center, open up your own daycare, some large hospitals have daycare rooms for children, check out what's available in your area.

You could start your own business (not biz opp, not mlm). Make sure you spend time seeking wisdom on how to figure out what your vision and passion is. Then seek out good books and/or free webinars to learn from experts on how to get it done.
You can do it. It's not impossible ... get any little negative chatter out of your head, and build your confidence / faith so you can stay positive and keep moving forward.
I am not real big on biz opps, but I am huge on developing your own ... or maybe even starting a community-benefit org, if you are really passionate about a specific cause.
I recently saw a story on Extreme Makeover Home Edition about a lady who started a mommy bootcamp where the moms could bring their kids with them and they'd all exercise together with her leading them through a rigorous program. I thought that was a fabulous way to give back to the community and make some money, too.
What do you have passion for? What do you love?

try smaller buisnesses and working from home or opening a home daycare. Things like babysitting or house sitting for others are good ways to make an income.

Ladies, this is NOT an opportunity for you to plaster your business opportunities all over this thread. I have already had to delete posts with solicitations and email addresses. If you have a personal vested interest in the OP joining your business opportunity it is considered a solicitation and is violating CoM guidelines.

Thank you

You may be able to find a place that has a daycare in the actual building...but like the others said, some sort of day care facility. Welcome to the USA, and good luck on your job hunt!
