Work from home business - with Toddler in tow!

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on business ideas which I can do from home - with a two year old!
I currently work 25 hours a week in a Law Firm and I am studying Human Resources (would love to be a HR manager one day!) but for now I am spending all my income on childcare and I begrudge paying a fortune for someone else to have the privilege of spending all day with my little boy.

Please give me some inspiration - I was thinking a dog walking business - I could get a toddler carrier for little one and hike around walking dogs all day, but someone's definitely going to tell me that children and strangers' dogs isn't a good combination!

Help!!

Honestly I don't think you can, toddlers are whirlwinds that need attention. I can leave my DS quite happily to play on his own for 30mins but I wouldn't be able to truly concentrate on anything as would need to be listening/poke my head around the door

Forget mlm bullshit.

OP a toddler wonr be happy in a carrier. They will want to get down.

In all honesty, taking a break from work makes it difficult to get back in. While you arent making any money at the moment. Keeping a career, will make it easier to find a job with your new qualification.

I work in HR. Its not that easy to get into. A career break, plus a qualification but no experience may not help you get into a role you want.
