As a wife and a mother i am expected to organize our family expenses. I know for a fact that a minimum wage can hardly support a couple, what more if you have two kids?

I struggle with so many things.

I have been in this internet stuff in a while now.
I was a telemarketer for two years before i stopped working and gave way to my pregnancy of my 2nd son who is still 6 months old now. My eldest son is 7 years old and now in Grade1. My husband works as a tricycle driver.
REALITY CHECK.
For a couple raising two sons, it is difficult to survive everyday on minimum wage. Our expenses continually rising but the income is still the same.
That is when I thought of doing homebased jobs. Why not make use of what I have learned in this internet thing. At first it was tough break. I was very unlikely to find a job when my internet connection is too slow. But it was only what I could afford.

I was happy to finally found a good paying job as Chat Support Specialist after a week of job hunting over the web. The work itself gives flexible time which makes it very convenient for me to look after my two sons and do the everyday house chores.
I make little changes all the time to be a better wife and a better mother while still getting my work done.
I am glad that the idea of homebased jobs came to happen. Earning in the convenience of your own home, sounds terrific.

One of the reasons my wife only had one child, to be financially responsible for that child and not to spread herself too thin. It is better to have fewer kids than you can afford than to have too many.

I know how tough it can be with income not rising to meet our needs and comforts. But there are always blessings too. When children find life is not easy, they mature faster and become more realistic. You have a positive attitude too - siva
