Summer is an exciting time. It's time to slow down, stop packing lunches, and rushing out the door each morning. Basically, it’s time to let go of the daily grind and just chillax for a couple of months, right?
Well, if you're a work-at-home parent, not exactly. While summer certainly brings warm-weather fun like cookouts and pools days, for you, it also means managing your typical workload with kids in the house.
Undoubtedly, it can feel a bit overwhelming. But if you don’t have the budget for childcare or camps all summer long, then what’s a WAHP to do? You don't want to let your kids fall into a Netflix fog all day, but you really don't want to lose your job, either.
Maintaining your kids and your focus at the same time isn’t always easy. But with a few creative approaches, you can make it work.
