Due to increasing unemployment in the world these days, most people tend to find online working jobs which enable them to earn income while doing a part-time job at home. However, this is somewhat difficult, especially if you’re a parent with a part-time job and little kids at the same time. If this is the case, there’s a greater possibility that you can’t get a job done, even though it is just a part-time job.
If you’re a parent and you’re one of those who are dealing with this kind of situation, you must do these things:
- Always formulate a plan ahead of your child’s activities. If you have a toddler or a young child around, you must make sure that they are too busy with what they are doing to bother you. That means that you must make sure that they are somewhat occupied in their activities during your work hours. It does not necessarily mean that you’ll just let them watch TV while you’re working. Instead, let them play some fun activities such as playing in your own backyard or having them put inside a sandbox where you can watch their activities closely. If a sandbox or backyard isn’t available, a playroom will suffice.
- Co-work with your child sometimes. There are times that your child only wants your presence while he or she does her thing. If this is the case, you can just set up a separate table for his or her, put some books or bond papers where he or she can draw or some coloring books for his or her enjoyment.
- Go outside with your child sometimes. Having a part-time job does not necessarily mean that you’ll just work inside your house all along. As long as you have a laptop, you can just take that with your child. And as your child tries to do his or her thing while outside, just connect to an available Wi-Fi hotspot then do your work.
