Those kids may not be old enough yet to fully entertain themselves. We reached out to FlexJobs for some advice:
- If you're able, split your days up, especially if your partner is working from home too. But, make sure you're prioritizing your schedule.
- Take advantage of working when your kids are asleep.
- Interruptions are likely to happen, praise and reward your kid for good behavior.
- Reach out to your village for help.
