Top tips for parents struggling to work from home with a toddler, powered by Amelio

It is clear what an immense challenge many families are facing right now. However, having your home be your office can be challenging – particularly with a toddler around creating havoc.

Here are 6 tips for working from home with a toddler:

Start the day early – The best way to work with a toddler at home is by getting as much done as possible when they aren’t around. Setting an alarm a couple of hours before they are up for the day.

Create a schedule – Line up your projects according to the time you may have – how will you engage your child while you tackle a Skype meeting? What can you accomplish during naptime? It’s important to work smarter, not harder.

Make them feel important – Try spending some quality time with your child in the mornings. If you start the day spending time with your child, they will feel important and tend to be less needy during the day, which means that you’ll be able to get more done.

Take advantage of naptime – Naptime is not only important for your little one’s health and development, it could help you be more productive while working from home too. Use that time to finish your large assignments requiring the most focus and concentration.

Keep them busy – Toddlers love to help out at home. Look for activities and exercises that you can line up for your child to help keep them productively engaged. If your child has something to look forward to, they are less likely to interrupt you.

Be flexible – It can be frustrating trying to be productive when you’re a work from home parent – especially on days when your child is extra fussy. Being flexible goes a long way. Plan for interruptions, try to get your work done in blocks of time, and tend to your child’s needs in between.
