Discussion on: How do you work with kids at home?

I have one daughter and I feel you. I work from home since before the pandemic and my wife work in office, so I can say I'm used to this situation. The one good tip I have is 'housework', it can be a quite handy way of teaching and entertaining at the same time. Things like separating cloth by color, cloth folding, bed making, toys organization, etc. They will need some guidance in the beginning but I assure you that they will have a great time finding their own way of doing it. You will not only get some extra time for the meeting but also give them something educational that won't come with the whole guilt stuff. Interruptions will still be a thing and learning how to handle them is the part where we are the ones that need some education 😉
