Flexible Ways to Earn Money as a Parent

As a parent, it is important that you have work that is flexible. This allows you to juggle being a good parent (the hardest job in the world) with earning money to provide for your family and to create a happy and enjoyable lifestyle for yourself. These days, there is a greater emphasis on work-life balance and flexibility, so what are a few of the best jobs that could offer flexibility while still allowing you to earn a healthy amount? There are all kinds of great ways to earn with the ability for you to still put your kids first and choose how much or little you work.

Blogger/Content Creator

I have found a lot of success starting my own website and creating content online. It started out as a hobby, but it has grown to actually provide my family a substantial income with perks of experiences. I love that I get to be creative and have the freedom to be there for my family whenever they need anything. If you are looking to start monetizing your blog or social media channels including SnapChat, Intellifluence is a great way to do that. Intellifluence is an all-in-one influencer marketing platform that enables brands and influencers to connect, collaborate and reach their goals.


Do you have a specialist skill or level of knowledge? If so, you can make money as a tutor or consultant, and this can be a great way to earn as you could teach from home, online, in classes and/or at other people’s homes/businesses. The options are endless for what you could teach, but a few popular options include:

Musical instrument
School subjects
English language

Online Freelance Work

You can also make money online with freelance work, and again there are many good options here. You can usually find work on job boards, but you may also be able to find ongoing work with clients and being a freelance worker puts you in control of your working hours and allows you to work from home. A few ideas for good freelance gigs include:
Web design
Content writing
Social media management
Graphic design

Taxi Driver

If you like to spend time behind the wheel, then becoming a taxi driver could be a good option and a flexible way to earn. You can pick and choose your hours and only work when the kids are at school, for example, which could allow you to juggle work and parenting. To find success as a cab driver, you will want to buy a black cab from somewhere like cabdirect.com so that you have a vehicle that is purpose-built and comfortable for your passengers.

Personal Trainer

If you are into health and fitness, you will find that there is good money to be made as a personal trainer and it can also be incredibly rewarding work. You will be your own boss which allows you a high level of flexibility, making it much easier to juggle your career and parenting responsibilities. You could even offer online classes as a way to make money from home.

This post should give you a few ideas and show that it is possible to find flexible work that will allow you to balance making a living and bringing up your kids. Parenting can be incredibly demanding, so it is important to have a job that offers some flexibility and allows you a good work-life balance so that you can manage and give enough attention to the important areas of your life.
