Earning extra income as a stay-at-home parent

June 20, 2023

As a stay-at-home parent, you may be debating having a side hustle to bring in additional income. Maybe your kids are a little older and you are finding you have some extra time or maybe you need the additional income. Lets discuss a few side hustle options.

Online Tutoring

Why not consider becoming an online tutor? Share your knowledge in subjects like math, science, English, foreign languages, or even musical instruments. With the rise of online learning platforms, there's never been a better time to turn your expertise into cash.

Selling Online

First, you could consider turning your hobby into a small business on a site like Etsy and selling your creations. Another option is product arbitrage, where you buy a product in one market and sell it for a higher price in another market where it's in demand. With a bit of research and smart buying, you can turn a profit by taking advantage of price differences.

Online Freelancing

Next, you could consider a part-time remote job. Depending on how many hours you are looking to work, and the specific skill set you would like to use you could search for part-time work that fits your criteria. Some examples may be graphic design, digital marketing, or even a virtual assistant.

Starting a Blog

Starting a blog can be a great job for a stay-at-home parent as it provides flexibility, the opportunity to monetize your content, and the ability to build a community and connect with readers, all while staying at home with your children.

Pet Sitting and Dog Walking

If you're a stay-at-home parent who loves animals and needs to make some extra cash, why not consider pet sitting or dog walking? Look for online platforms where you can connect with pet owners in your area as a way to get started.

Having a growing family is expensive and it may be beneficial to earn some extra income while being a stay-at-home parent. While keeping your family’s schedule in mind, ask yourself what type of side hustle would you be interested in and how many hours can you dedicate to it? Answering those questions may help you narrow your job search.
