Working from Home with Children

So many mothers are choosing to stay at home and care for their children while they are young. The joy of being able to be there at every moment is just too wonderful of an opportunity to miss out on. However, even though an eight hour or more job is out of the question, many mothers still seek ways that they can bring in an income or at least some extra cash.

This is where working from home come in to play. Finding a suitable job that would allow you to work from the comfort of your own and that doesn’t require a quiet environment is not very easy. Most popular positions require that you have a dedicated work space free of noise. A house full of kids or even just one or two can be quite the opposite of “quiet”.

Well, all hope isn’t lost. Thankfully there are some positions out there that you can do and not have to worry about whether or not your child’s laughter or frantic screams will be heard.

Jobs that Don’t Require You to be on the Phone

Here are few listings of companies that don’t require you to be on the phone. Like any other job, you would do well to research these companies to make sure that they meet the criteria that you are looking for that will best suite you and your family’s needs.

Google Quality Evaluator

A Quality Evaluator would evaluate keywords in reference to websites. You would be reviewing the results given based on specific search queries and rate them as being relevant or irrelevant. In a nutshell, you will be assessing websites to ensure that the search results provided are accurate. All work is performed on your computer and entered in your hiring company’s database system.

Companies that hire search engine evaluators include: Lionbridge, Appen Butler Hill, and Workforce logic.


InteliChek hires workers to mystery shop while working from home. How so? Well, via the telephone. Yes, I know, we are supposed to be considering jobs that don’t require you to be on the phone. Well, the wonderful thing about this company is that they do allow some background noise as it helps the phone calls that you make to sound realistic. Of course, you would still need to know your limits, but for the most part, noise is allowed to a certain degree.

With this company, you would be placing phone calls to businesses and asking questions concerning automobile parts or getting quotes for particular services. Once you have obtained the required information, you would then enter it into your database.

Amazon Mechanical Turker (Mturk)

With “mturk” you are able to work performing small tasks for individuals and companies. These task range in description. Some are as simple as getting paid to take a survey to writing articles. Pay varies as well, you have some task that would range from five cents to twenty five dollars. It just all depends. Each task also comes with a set time limit that you have to complete the task within. Working as a “turker” won’t make you rich, but it does allow you to make a little extra money for your pockets.


Do you enjoy writing? Why not write and get paid for it? There are so many “mommy bloggers” out there (we don’t want to forget our stay at home dads that blogs too) who have their own blogs and make pretty decent revenue from them. Blogging is a great way to share your thoughts and ideas with the world, but realistically, it does take hard work, time, and patience before the money starts rolling in.

In the meantime, if you love to write, then write with all your heart and enjoy what you do. Supply your readers with good, quality articles to read and in due time you will reap what you sow.

Setting up your own personal website can be done using a platform like “WordPress”, with a little self-training you could create your own blog or you could have someone else do it for you.


If you have the patience and a love for children, you could consider babysitting for extra money. Given that you are already taking care of your own children, you are in a good position because you likely have everything you would need. Babysitting one or two children could bring you a decent amount of extra cash every week.

If you really want to get bold, you could consider opening your own childcare center. If you live in an area where it is in demand, getting clients would come easy. If you have the extra space in your own, this could be something worth looking into.

      Good pointers! I appreciate seeing specific leads like these, rather than general, conceptual overviews. I was not aware of the option to be a Google Quality Evaluator... interesting! Thanks for sharing.
