At this point, let me do some math for you! The payoff that you do for putting your child in daycare cost less when compared to the amount that you earn from your 9-5 job. But being a Desi Indian mom, you want to spend time with your children. And home-based offline jobs would be the right option for you.

1. Tuition (Tutoring)

Tuition is one of the most preferred jobs by mothers. You only have to spend 1-2 hours per day to help students with their studies. If you are good at one particular subject, then you can tea h that subject for class 11th or 12th. Or else you can go with the lower classes.

Pick CBSE as your board to get more students. You can choose between group tuition wherein you get paid on a monthly basis or individual tuition wherein you can either get paid per hour or per month.

2. Babysitting/Nanny Service

Most moms prefer a babysitter or nanny compared to daycare because of the individual attention that is provided by them. Babysitting is a method to look after children while parents are out for work. It doesn't require any academic schedules as such. As you are having a baby, you can babysit at your own home.

In India, babysitting does not require a license if the number of children is very few. But when it comes to baby care, parents would love to send their children to a licensed and well equipped babysitting center. Here you can charge on a monthly basis or an hourly basis.

Income:
You can charge between Rs.3,500 to Rs.5,000 per child.

  1. Your own child will have a great childhood with lot of friends.

3. In-Home Cooking Service

If you live in flats where people are so busy that they don't even have time for cooking, you can offer food for them. And being a mom, cooking is not a strange thing for you. An in-home cooking service could work well if you have hostels near your home as hostel foods are disliked by most.

You can cook food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and put it in your residential Whatsapp group or Instagram page so that people can order from you. You don't have to cook a special dish; simple food can do the job. All you need to do is cook in a large quantity and fill the taste buds of consumers. What you should charge depends on the dish that you sell.

If you think you are not a pro baker, then go for baking classes and then start your own home baking business.
