What types of careers would be best to be able to support a family, and yet be home enough for kids?

What are some really good careers that allow enough time to spend at home with family. Since my father was gone all the time, I always wanted a job that would make it to where I would be home for my children. But I thought of teaching, and yet so many people tell me that it takes away alot of time. Any suggestions?
