Sandra Weber, host of Work at Home Family Talk Radio, and I talked today about Parenthood and working at home. Sandra, mother of 7 has been working from home on and off for the last 10 years and she had lots to say about the challenges and rewards of combining parenthood and working at home.
Tips from the show about working at home with children:
- Be flexible! Remember that is why you wanted to work at home, so you would have more control over your schedule. Going with the flow is better than struggling upstream.
- Find a schedule that works for you. Don’t feel that you have to have a 9-5 schedule, find what really works well for you, your family, and your business…it may be unconventional and that is ok.
- Include your family. Try to include your family in your business. It will help the understand what you do and also reinforce that your business is important to your family. For younger children let them know that playing quietly during a conference call or watching a video while you work with a client is their part in helping you.
- Have set work hours. While it is important to have flexibility and a schedule that works for everyone, it is equally important that you have a time in the day where you are done with work. It is common to have an increase in working hours because it is more accessible, it is important to keep balanced to make working at home work.
