I am looking for an at home job that I can do with a noisy 5 month old. I currently have a job, but making 200+ cold calls a day is virtually impossible with my teething, attention needing, bundle of joy. Any help would be appreciated, also no MLM please... I have tried plenty, they are not for me. Thank you!!!

James, consider the possibility that you can be in trouble for allowing your 12 year old access to p***. well he might need a cell phone in case he get stranded somewhere, it isnt really necessary. a cheap government phone that only allows calls and texts will do just fine. simply keep his phone, replace it with the cheap one and tell him he doesn't need it unless he's out without you. make it clear that he is only to use it when he has to call you when he is stuck. and that he must answer when you call, no exceptions. my youngest two are 13 and 10 and they are rarely in a situation where they would get stuck anyway. yes, they can call and say they are uncomfortable and ask to be picked up, but they can also do that at a place of business as long as it's a local call. the only time there was a true emergency was when my daughter called to say the bus has broken down. she has called before, to tell me that her own brother had promised to take her and the other two sibling to the mall but instead stopped off at his girlfriends. believe me, that was the end of his taking them out and the end of his driving. sitting at home, there is no reason for your 12 year old to need a phone. when we are at home, we use my cell phone just as my parents used the house phone: calls are limited to what you need to say. yes, I get the occasional running late text from friend but friends who do this all the darn time are not really friends. you can only have so many trains that stop you from getting there on time. there is no need for long conversations or intricate texts. if you can't say it out loud, maybe you shouldn't.

I recently opened my 12-year-old son's messages on his cell phone and was shocked when I saw a conversation with explicit language of a porn nature also looked at the history on web browsing and was shocked at what I saw any advice on how to approach this matter

You would be better off asking this in the work from home communities. We don't allow solicitations here and a question like this just encourages them.

I am in that position currently. Realistically I would like a part time job, I have family that can help watch the baby for a few hours a day. My issue is most of the at home jobs that I find are scam sounding and I am worried about sending out to much information.

Working at home is hard. I have done it for 17 yrs now. Here is what I have learned....if you want to work full time then you will probably need a babysitter of some sort, be it a nanny, a sitter that comes to your house a few days a week, or an in home daycare or day care center. If you want to do without a sitter your work times are often times while they nap, so that often means you are working part time or less. People always think working from home is great....and if can be. You are at home with your child and you have a flexible work schedule, but you can't give 100% to both your child and your work at the exact same time. You have to juggle. You have to decide how much each one gets, which means you may need to use a sitter so you can get some work done while someone is entertaining your child. Or it means you give up some of your workload in order to get what you need done while they sleep and then you can spend your time with your child when they are awake.
