Discussion on: What are some tips for working as a remote developer with children at home?

I have 4 kids and work from home. They are all still very young. I couldn't do if my husband wasn't home to watch them. I already have a lot of little interruptions throughout the day even with him watching the kids, I don't think it would work at all if I was the primary caregiver and working from home.
If you can afford it, I would suggest finding someone to help you look after your son during the time you want/need to work. It is going to be very hard to be productive if you are watching your son and working remotely. (Nice thing about working remotely and being a parent though, is that you can stop and be with your little one throughout the day.) But if you are trying to balance long stretches of work while also watching your son I think you are going to find it very frustrating and difficult. Best of Luck on whatever your family decides and congratulations on the new little one in your life :)
