At 3.6%, the unemployment rate is refreshingly low, but that doesn't mean that people are making enough money at their jobs. Tons of Americans rely on both their full-time jobs and a side hustle to make ends meet.

Balancing two gigs can be enormously stressful, especially if you're also raising young children.

The key is finding a side gig that doesn't feel like work, said Matthew Warzel, CPRW, president of MJW Careers, LLC.

"Something that isn't overly time-consuming, but also worth the amount of income per successful project completion," Warzel said. "An ideal goal to start out with is to first make up any expenses you've incurred from the startup, then focus on small goals. Maybe $1,000 a month...then up to $1,500, $2,000, etc."

And if you're feeling doubtful, remember that no one knows how to hustle like a parent.

"Moms and dads know how to get a task done well and quietly if it's nap time, whether they're a chauffeur, a short-order cook, a house cleaner, a teacher, a budgeter, a personal shopper, a waste-management specialist or a raiser of human beings," said David Attard, digital consultant and web designer at Collectiveray.

With that in mind, let's explore 10 of the best side gigs for busy, working parents of young kids.
