How To Separate Family From Work When Working At Home

By
Real Estate Services with Think Glink Media

People are finding it easier to be stay-at-home moms or dads while also employed at a job. Technology helps these people work from home with jobs like telecommuting or even a home business. 

This may seem like the best of both worlds for family women and men out there, but it may be difficult for some to balance out family work from job work.

Here are some ways to help separate work from family:

1. Create a specific workplace in your home

2. Create a schedule and design work hours

3. Understand when it is time to quit

Following these steps may help your clients prevent family from impeding on work and vice versa. For more information about working from home click here.

I have found a great way to not have a problem working at home with my family because I live alone with my dogs.  I still set parameters though because enough is enough.

Bud and Beth- 

Absolutely. Family time is critical, and the few extra hours you spend working instead of enjoying family can really add up if you let them.

Linda-

With all the technology we have today, it's easy to get sucked into answering emails until all hours of the night. It's certainly a challenge to stay away, especially when there's a lot going on at work.

Nan-

Whether your 'children' are of the human or animal persuasion, they always want your undivided attention!

You cannot completely schedule kids or their needs, especially when you are in the home.  This business also infringes on the personal life.  I think I have some balance, but it is flexible.
