Can you work from home and take care of the kids?

Working from home with children around is challenging. No doubt about that. However, there are things you can do that will make it productive for you and provide you for other benefits. Over at itbusiness.ca is a article titled, Child’s play: How to work from home and take care of the kids that outlines the ten essential steps to doing this. They are:

# Create a separate space.
# Set ground rules.
# Beat back kid noise.
# Install a kidcam.
# Kidproof your workspace.
# Protect pushable PC buttons.
# Lock down your keyboard.
# Kidproof your software.
# Bookmark kid-friendly search engines.
# Block the bad stuff from the Web.

See the article for the details behind each step. It’s good. I recommend one more step: be patient.
