I am a work from home parent, and I am finding it challenging to balance my work responsibilities with my parenting duties. I am struggling to manage my time effectively, and I feel like my productivity has been impacted because of the constant distractions and interruptions that come with being a parent.
I want to be able to communicate my challenges and needs to my employer, but I am not sure where to start. I don't want to come across as complaining or making excuses, but I also don't want to suffer silently and fall behind on my workload.
Has anyone else faced similar challenges and successfully communicated them to their employer? What strategies did you use to effectively communicate your needs and challenges without risking your job or reputation? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
