Choosing to be a stay-at-home parent is not an easy decision to make. You’re essentially sacrificing your freedom for the well-being of your child. Plus, it can also get a bit tedious after a while, and there’s a possibility of financial problems, since you’re not working. But hey, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way.  

Here are some of the best ideas for you to make money without stepping a toe out of your house:

1. Babysitting

If you’ve chosen to stay home to take care of your child or children, why not earn some extra money for it? You can advertise about your services in your local area and secure babysitting jobs. 

2. Pet sitting

Who says care-giving services should be limited to just babies? While your neighbors are off to the office, you can take care of their pets for them.

3. Tutoring

A great way to earn money at home is by offering tutoring to your neighbor’s kids. If you’re actually good at it, why just limit it to the neighbors? You can offer online tutoring sessions through Skype or your own personal website. Who knows? You could be the next Khan Academy.

4. Music lessons

Teaching or tutoring doesn’t need to be limited to studies alone. You can offer private music lessons either directly to your community members or online.

5. Freelance online writing

Do you think you have what it takes to be a good writer? If you do, then you have plenty of opportunity to earn at home through freelance writing. Many blogs and websites are constantly in search of freelance or ghost writers. You can also use some of the leading freelance writing platforms to advertise your skills.

6. Freelance graphic designing

In a world of social media and email marketing, graphic designing is a field that’s never lacking in available work. From designing to infographics to entire media campaign, there’s plenty of scope for opportunities here.

7. Freelance web designing

Every business, activity, or organization needs a website. If you can offer them exactly that on a competitive price, then web designing is the activity for you.

8. Search engine optimization

Staying within the confines of online marketing, search engine optimization is a great way to secure clients and earn money. All you have to do is help your clients rank better in search results.

9. Event planning

You can use your organization skills to save others the hassle of making event schedules, preparing invitations, or doing the logistical stuff. Event planning can be easily done from home and, if you’re able to establish yourself, you can earn you good money.

10. Food businesses

If you have sufficient culinary talent and an ability to adequately market your skills, you can find a whole host of opportunities to earn at home. You can plan meals for your clients, which involves creating shopping lists and preparing everyday meal plans. You can also go for home catering or baking while maintaining a personal cooking website at the same time.
