Tips for working from home during spring break – Small Business Corner
We are about to jump into spring break season for the kiddos, yay for them but maybe not so much for those of us who have to work and/or cannot take time off. With school out for a whole week or even several months, it is imperative that parents decide how the kids will spend this time sooner rather than later. Here are some tips to help you and your family survive the break!
Ask for help
Call in reinforcements for assistance, like grandparents, aunts, cousins, and other extended family. You can pitch spring break to them as an opportunity to have quality one-to-one time with the grand-kids and that is usually all it takes.
Spring break camps are a wonderful and entertaining option for children. If you do a little bit of research you can likely find a place that offers programs in an area of interest your child has. If you do some homework you can save some money and have peace of mind knowing your children are happy and busy doing something fun.
Team up with others
You can reach out to your friends and to the parents of your children’s classmates. Not everyone will have to work and you can likely work out play-dates during the work day for your children with other families. Then to repay the favor to your friends, you can offer to watch their kids one evening or on a weekend so they can have a date night. As parents we have to look out for and help each other and “tag teaming” through playdates is one way to do just that.
There are many options and activities you can consider when trying to find productive and engaging ways to keep your child(ren) occupied during spring break. And having plans in place will make for a stress-free, fun, and memorable break. Good luck and we hope you have a great spring break!
