Managing Kids And A Home Business

By Daphne Succes

If you are managing kids and a home business, you are already familiar with the concept of multi-tasking. In order to balance home life with a home business, you must be willing to endure the stress of missing spending all of your time with your children and with starting your own company. However, if done properly, managing kids and a home business can be one of the best things that any mom can do.

When you first start a business, your children will not understand why you are no longer able to be with them all of the time. For this reason, it is a good idea to start working in small amounts of time until the kids get used to the idea. Politely explain that their mom has some work to do and that, if they can play quietly, you will be able to spend some time with them in a little while. Perhaps putting their favorite movie in the DVD player or turning on the video game will allow them some entertainment while you are busy at work.

When managing kids and a home business, it's a good idea to keep your home office near the children. You will want to keep an eye on them, make sure that they are playing safely and are behaving properly. You would not want to be in a different room and leave your children completely unattended for any amount of time. Always keep an eye on the little ones because they are more precious than any job could ever be, so make sure they are the number one priority in your life.

An ideal way to get your children used to the new work schedule is to set aside certain times each day for work and play. Stick to the schedule so that the kids will become familiar with it as opposed to working when you get the chance. Perhaps while you are working, the children can watch their favorite movie or television show. Maybe they can practice their reading or play learning games. If at all possible, make work time for you a fun time for them. It will make for a much easier transition if your children are happy. In turn, you will be happy and more able to properly operate your home business with as little stress as possible.

As a final thought, when managing kids and a home business, always be sure to spend plenty of time with your children and family. Work, especially running your own business, can be very time consuming. Always eat with your children and take the time to play and laugh them. While it may sound very challenging, managing kids and a home business can be very rewarding. As a woman, you will be instilling the impression that anything is possible if you work hard enough to achieve it. These lessons will stay with your children and it will help to continue the same beliefs as they grow older.
