Managing Work From Home with Kids

Covid-19 changed the working style of countless of employees. Many of us had the provision to work from home but for some it was altogether a new concept. Working from home offers us flexibility but for those who had never acclimatized to this style of working may find it challenging. On top of that, the equation changes for those who have toddlers or young kids as one has to deal with constant interruptions and distractions. Schools were shut, online classes started, so not only we had to sit with our little ones during their classes but simultaneously do our own work as well. I am sure many of us would have faced difficulties in doing so. In addition, the added stress from the pandemic has only made things worse. So here I am writing this article that can help to adapt  work from home culture with kids around and eliminate professional risks associated with it.

Stories - A Key Ingredient in a Child's Growth

Stories are an integral part of every person's childhood. My childhood mostly revolved around Panchatantra stories especially the story of The Rabbit and the Tortoise race and the Crocodile and the Monkey, which are even popular today. The famous line to start every story - Once upon a time - is still cherished by myself. Kids like to immerse themselves in these fantasy or imaginary world where there is always a happy ending. Augmented with attractive pictures, stories provide simple understanding of human life. And kids never get tired of hearing the same story over and over again. So parents should be patient and calm with their kids and should not hesitate if a story has to be repeated several times. Plus repetition has also shown to increase the kids vocabulary.

New Paradigm in Parenting of Toddlers

Are you a mother of a toddler? Is your toddler home bound since March? Have you reached your saturation point on being calm with your toddler? Are you scratching your head to find new ways of keeping your young ones occupied?

I am sure all the mothers either working or not are facing this challenge post Covid outbreak and struggling to help their children adapt to the new normal. Their patience level has gone down and temper levels have increased. It is a task keeping kids engaged in a fruitful activity for a longer period of time. As most of the stocked up toys and books have been opened and nothing new is left with the parents, now is the time to think out of the box and bring the creativity to the table.
