Working From Home With Kids? These 8 Must-Haves Will Save Time (and Your Sanity)
by Bethany Braun-Silva
We know you’re not getting outside much these days. With coronavirus becoming more and more widespread, health officials are encouraging all of us to stay home, indefinitely. But that doesn’t mean life stops. In fact, it just got busier than ever, in a different way. Many people are finding themselves working from home, which would be fantastic under normal circumstances — but with school closures happening, we are working at home with our kids.
That means, in addition to all the tasks we do as parents, we are now our kids’ teachers too. Shonda Rimes put it best in a recent Tweet: “Been homeschooling a 6-year old and 8-year old for one hour and 11 minutes. Teachers deserve to make a billion dollars a year. Or a week.”
Parents are probably feeling overwhelmed with having to homeschool while keeping up with their own work responsibilities, which we understand all too well. But there are multitasking products that can help keep you on track so you or your kids don’t go crazy. For now, take it one day at a time, breathe and try to stay positive. And check out the items we’re using every day below.
