I'm currently going through a divorce, with two children. I have been a stay at home mom for ten years?
I am having a difficult time trying to find a job that will pay the bills and also allow me to be there for my kids, I have passed up several opportunities because of this. I just got hired by Aflac insurance as a sales agent. I am really not a sales person, I am just running out of options. Does anyone have any ideas about good jobs for working moms, or any feedback about working for Aflac? Thanks.

If your children are all of school age, then you may consider something in your local independent school district. That way, you have the same hours as your kids, including breaks and vacations. Might be something worth looking into.
