Hi Guitar Girl, thanks for sharing with us. It can definitely be challenging balancing working from home and caring for children all at once.

It sounds like minimizing your child’s exposure to screen time is important to you. It can be helpful to create a daily routine with a list of activities that your child can engage in. Although they may not stay occupied for long stretches of time, it may help create blocks of time where you can get work done. Check out these resources for ideas, tips and support on coping with kids during the COVID pandemic.

Practicing self-care and managing your own stress is also important during this time. It may be helpful to speak to your employer about your concerns so that you can work together to develop a potential solution (i.e. flexible hours, reduced workload etc.).
