Parent On Duty

Parent On Duty

I took the AM shift today so my husband could work. Then he took the afternoon shift so I could be on several conference calls.

This is our new system. Our new rhythm. Our new survival tactic.

We’re calling it “Parent On Duty” and it’s saving our lives right now. The kids can only interrupt the parent on duty if they need help with homework. The other parent gets at least a few uninterrupted hours to work.

If you have kids you are now quaran-teaching AND you and your spouse are working from home, this is something to try. It’s not a perfect system, of course, but it’s working for now. 

We also sat down as a family and created a schedule for the day so they know what to do when.

This is our new system. Our new rhythm. Our new survival tactic.

If you came here for social media marketing advice, I’ll have more of that for you soon after we settle into this new rhythm.

I’m extending myself grace. And I hope you’re doing the same for yourself.

Yours,
Megan
