I recently started working from home due to the pandemic, and while it has its perks, it's been challenging for me to balance my responsibilities as a parent and an employee. I have two kids, a four-year-old and a six-year-old, who need my attention throughout the day, and I also have deadlines to meet and work that needs to be done.
I find myself feeling guilty when I need to attend to my children's needs during work hours or when I need to put work aside to make dinner or help with homework. I want to be a good parent and a good employee, but it's becoming overwhelming.
I'm hoping to get some advice from those who have been in a similar situation and have found strategies to balance their responsibilities as a parent and an employee while working from home.
Thank you in advance for your help.
