Combining Work-From-Home with Your Kids’ School Work During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Combining Work-From-Home with Your Kids’ School Work During the Coronavirus Outbreak

You probably have not assisted your kids with their school work in a long time. This is because of your busy office schedules. As the coronavirus pandemic lingers, you need to help tutor your kids while also getting your office work done from home. Encourage yourself with the reality that you are not alone in this hurdle. So, just like other families, you will eventually adjust to the situation.

Indeed, self-quarantining or isolation is needful in the time we are in. So, you need to adjust your schedules and find a way to cope with the present situation. Keep reading to learn how you can scale through this hurdle.

Start by Planning Each Day

Planning is essential to success in all you do. While this seems like a humongous task, it can be reduced to simpler and less demanding task when you plan well. So, start by creating a comprehensive plan and schedule on how your work and tutoring tasks will go each day.
Make sure you set your priorities well. For instance, if your optimal work periods are the morning hours, then start with your office tasks first. Then, you can take a break when you have hit a certain target, before settling to coach the kids. It’s also helpful to allot realistic time frame to each task.

Seek Learning Aids

You can make the coaching task easier by looking out for aids. But first, check the internet for online learning plans during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can also contact the local school district for digital classroom activities (if any). You can download the app or program to your mobile device and practice how it works.

Schedule Routines for Your Work

You need a routine to guide you while working remotely. As hinted earlier, your daily work routine and even your coaching routine for your kids should feature the following;

  • A specific task –e.g. reading and replying work emails
  • Time – You should also learn to allot time to each task to avoid spending too much time a particular task. For the example used above, you can allot 30 minutes to reading and replying official emails. It’s helpful to include the start and end time – e.g. 10:00 am to 10:30 am. You should have a time piece close by.
  • A target. In the case of specific task above, you can target at least 10 emails within the time allotted.
  • Performance measure for your set goals

Get Help

You shouldn’t stretch yourself beyond the limit you can bear. Especially if you own your own business, you can seek help to make the task less daunting for you this season. You don’t want to wear yourself out completely jumping from business work to tutoring the kids, cleaning the house, and probably preparing meals for the family.

One of such help you can get is outsourcing. You can outsource trivial administrative tasks to a virtual assistant. This way, you can stay strong and combat the corona virus.
