For example, today (Thursday) happens to be Take Your Children To Work Day! Obviously, THAT’S changed for lots of parents and their kids in 2020.
If you work from home, and have children, you’ve been taking them to work, maybe in a spare bedroom or your dining room, for well over a month now! How is it working out for you? Is it a distraction? Are you happy to have them around knowing they’re safe? Or maybe a little of both.
