Hey ladies!! My name is Devon and I am 18 years old. I currently am working as a waitress but being the single mommy that I am, I need some more money. I am also still in high school, and I get NO help from my son's father.

I have no idea where to start. I have heard sooo many ads out there for working at home. I don't have many skills, but I can use the computer pretty good. I read the post that had all of the links in it, but I need something fairly easy. Can someone please help??? Thanks!

Hi Devon, and welcome!
First, (and totally off the topic!) you SHOULD be getting help from the baby's father. Why not contact legal aid and see what they can do?

Second (also not what you asked for, but I taught high school and can't help myself ) PLEASE finish school. Find a way to hang in there until June. There are so so so many more opportunities for someone who has that diploma, and getting a GED is much more difficult.

As to the rest, I'm not so sure. Find some time and go online. Try "work at home sites" or "Stay at Home Mom" types of sites. You say you're good at the computer.. could you be more specific? (Not with me; I'm a total moron when it comes to the computer) Find the terminology for what you can do and hit the freelance sites with that termininology. (For the record, "telecommute" is another word for work at home.)

I hope someone out there has more for you.

I do have a child support case opened, but I don't know what's going to happen with it. And I plan to go back to school in January!!

Devon, (((Hugs)))) first of all. I agree with Alice. Your baby's father has to pay child support. It's not a choice he has. It may take some time to get the paperwork done, but he has to pay it. I had my first at 19 so I know how tough it is. I was a single mom for a little while. There is tons of financial aid out there. You should really take advantage of it and go to school while you can get it for free. I understand wanting to be home with your baby so there I feel for you, but if you started taking classes at the community college or a tech school you can go on a flexible schedule. If you want some ideas on school let me know. I can tell you how to get started.
