Working From Home With Kids
The adjustment from office life to working from home requires establishing boundaries between work and personal life. Which, if we are being honest, is harder than it sounds. I have personally worked from home before, but never with a child at home. A quick web search will produce hundreds of articles and blogs on how to transition to a work from home lifestyle, but not many for full-time workers with kids. Parents and kids nationwide are making the transition to learning Zoom, online communication, and hitting deadlines. The team at the App-Garden made the transition to remote working three weeks ago, and many of our team had to plan for children and their work schedule. Here are some of their tips and some extras for navigating this new work style.
- Kaila Ashley, Sales and Marketing Manager
- Every night I sit down and write out a checklist for my son for the next day. I try to stay away from a super strict schedule and fit in-class time in between my scheduled meetings, which can fluctuate at times.
- Cassidy Beam, Facility Tracker Specialist
- I have to be very specific with my daughter, so I make a checklist. Wake up, eat breakfast, brush hair, one hour of dedicated schoolwork and determine what subjects to do for the rest of the day, etc.
