What are some things that you stay home moms do to make money? Is there really an internet job that actually works or do you have any suggestions? It kind of makes me feel like i dont matter or people think i dont do everything i do just because i dont get a paycheck for what i do...and does anyone else feel like that?

I work at home with a wellness company that has been in business for 26 years and is a member of the BBB. Before I started working with them, I did feel inadequate because I wasn't earning money. I have worked since I was 12, and not working at all was very frustrating. This job also provides me with social interactions on a business and social level.

I feel this way a lot. I feel jealous that my husband gets to go to work and make money and be important while I stay home and don't make any money but work harder.

We do have a job! We are raising our kids. If you were both working someone else would basically be raising them.
NOT to bash working moms, I just got a job because I'm single now. I had no choice. My ex doesn't give me a penny. So now I work part time AND I'm a SAHM. If that makes sense lol. I only work 20 hours per week.

Lots of people treat me like I'm some lazy mooch on my husband or something. But I try not to let it get to me. I certainly have no reason to believe it's true because I know what I do every day. My husband knows what I do for my family and the only opinions that matter are mine and my husbands. Don't get a job because other people think you should. It's different when you have to but really If you don't have to, what you're doing is plenty. I know my household would fall part if I worked (even if it was after the kids were in bed because I do a lot of cleaning and prep after the kids are in bed that my husband would never do). You can probably get certified in something like medical billing or something. I don't know of legit Internet at home work. I know it exists but have no idea where to find it. Good luck. You do matter and you do plenty. Don't let other people get to you.
