How has working from home changed your experience of being a parent?


How has being a parent changed since working from home? The pace of life has probably picked up the most, since we’re all together more. It’s strange not having the old standards like school or summer camp. It really kind of drives home how much kids depend on you for just about everything. It’s a little more effort now to balance work and life and it’s sometimes hard to work when your kids are working through a disagreement in the room next door. There’s been a bit of a learning curve to all this, but also some really great memories. Sometimes it feels like we’re really starting to get to know one another in ways that we might not have if we were all kind of off doing our own things so much. So, it’s been a real surprise the whole way through. A lot of work, but also a lot of joy.
