How To Work From Home.. with your kids?

Working from home is not easy as 1-2-3. Working home based mothers may have the impression that working from home is nothing but heaven. Adjustable working schedule. Having more time with your little angels. And being the boss of your own job. Isn’t that great? Well definitely yes, those are just some of the advantages of having your work home based however there are also disadvantages when working at home. It is necessary to know those disadvantages and to have the knowledge of time management tips for you to succeed in your home based job.

Often times working home based mothers find it hard to schedule their time for work and their time for their family. Normally in an office work, you will leave your work in your office then come home to your family then come back to your office again. Unfortunately, when working from home, oftentimes your time focuses into your family instead of your job (be reminded that this is your reason of having the job in the first place). So to solve that issue, you have to make a working schedule and then stick to it. Be strict of your working time. If you are a perfectionist when it comes to your job then it requires some discipline in this kind of issue.

Working while checking on your kids is a tough job, really, it is! Getting some help from your family, trustworthy friend, relative or getting a babysitter who can watch your child while your finishing your tasks is the right thing to do. Or you may also look for some other mother in the next door of your house who would want to look after the kids.

Keep your little ones busy to avoid distractions. Turn your phones to silent mode, disable your facebook and twitter notifications. Discipline yourself and optimize your time if you want to focus to your work.

Working at home gives us, mothers, the opportunity to watch over our children while earning with our online jobs. It also allows us to set our own hours and be available whenever our family needs us. It does not necessarily require us to work for 8 hours a day following a strict schedule. Furthermore you don’t have to seek for the permission of a boss because in this kind of job you are the boss of your own! So therefore you can do the job any time you want. Just be flexible at all cost!

It is also important that you maintain a normal balance of work time and family time. Get a life outside the internet. Going out with your friends could be a big help. It is not a good idea to deprive yourself of socialization as well.

* The second pix is mine. I managed to work while my kid is asleep. I placed my laptop somewhere near my child so I could watch over him all the time.

I chose to be a SAHM or stay-at-home-mom to be able to raise my child my own way. Never realized how hard it could be especially with organization and being systematic on all aspects of being a SAHM and WAHM (work-at-home-mom).

Indeed working from home together with your kids around is obviously a big challenge. However that is one of the main reasons why we prefer to work at home with our kids – to earn extra income without compromising the quality time with our kids. You have to devote your time to learn how it’s being done. You have to work hard, do some research and study it. It’s not about being lucky. It’s all about the passion and the willingness to be one.
