Working from home can be convenient but it comes with challenges of its own. Having a quiet space to work in where you don’t get distracted and can set a routine to focus on your goals can be very tough. You have to manage job responsibilities while your children continue with their usual frolicking around, adding a new dynamic to your possibly just-new job environment. With your kids on extended breaks from school and sharing the same space as you, it’s much easier to get distracted. No matter how clearly you specify the goals you’ve set for yourself, you can’t expect your kids to comply with them the same way you do.
With these eight tips, your work-from-home environment can be much more productive and easier to work in. Having your kids at home during their extended break presents an excellent opportunity for teaching teamwork and cooperation while handling this unexpected collision of schedules. By rising together to the challenge, working from home can be a great way for you to connect with your kids and strengthen the bond you have with them.
Working from home with kids can be challenging but also extremely rewarding when you make the most of it and implement these tips.
