Minding baby -- and making extra cash

Being a stay-at-home parent is a full-time job. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a full-time paycheck. As a result, it can be hard for some families relying on just one income to make ends meet or build savings.

However, there are ways for stay-at-home moms and dads to earn a bit of extra cash to supplement the family budget without leaving the house or sacrificing time with the kids. In fact, here are 10 money-making opportunities that can be pursued when your children are at school or asleep, or possibly even when they are awake and demanding your attention. The earnings potential is modest, and not every opportunity will be right for you, but over the course of a year you could pocket hundreds - and possibly even thousands - of dollars.
