Tips For Working at Home with Toddlers
All the activities suggested to help you work at home are fun, durable, and will be played over and over. You will be able to give your kids hand-eye coordination activities as well as number and alphabet learning. Providing different and unique toys for your kids will keep their attention longer allowing you to concentrate more fully on your work.
While you are working, your children can have their own office time and toys that are different from their everyday toys. You may personalize your work area with your own special chair and cup for coffee. Likewise, you can personalize your kid’s office play area so that they feel like it is a special place as well. Keeping your toddlers where you can hold a watchful eye over them will make you feel more relaxed. The more relaxed you are, the more productive you can become.
I have worked from home for many of years with 2 to 3 kids right in the room with me or in eye-shot. We have an open floor plan which I loved, as I could always keep them in sight. I would not have changed working from home with my kids for anything. However, while working at home you do have to realize that you will be interrupted often. Having activities and toys that keep them occupied will give you the time you need to get tasks done.
I have always made lists. Dividing my work up into chunks made it possible for me to accomplish a lot of work by the end of the day, even if it did not seem that way when I was in the middle of the day.
