Episode 221: How to Get Things Done While Your Kids are at Home with Dana & NJ
For many of us Boss Moms, figuring out how to get work done while our kids are at home is a daily reality (and no easy feat!)
In this episode NJ and I are discussing strategies and tips for actually being productive and getting things done while the kids are home for a sick day, a snow day, a summer, or all the time.
In This Episode You’ll Hear:
- Personal examples of what kind of work NJ and I have learned we can and can’t do when the kids are home
- Why it’s important to know when your “time of genius” is and how to maximize your ability to get work done then
- Creative ways to integrate your kids into the work you’re doing
- Why frustration and guilt make it harder to get things done
- Practical tips to help you set yourself up for success instead of frustration
- How to understand and follow both your kids’ cues and level of development or ability
- How to set standards and condition your kids to respect your work time
