  1. Once of the reasons why you chose to work from home was to be with your kids. As such, make sure you devote quality time with them each day. Stop working for a chunk of time and do activities together…

    I’ve gotten quite good at writing while surrounded by mayhem. :D If you’d asked me about that 5 years ago, I’d have answered, “No way! I need peace and quiet in order to write.”

    In fact, while peace and quiet are lovely for writing, I can manage without. Needs must.

    I’ve found the danger now lies in the other direction. I am able to tune out my family more continuously than I really want to! So, now I work to make sure I take regular breaks during which I connect with my kids and my spouse.

  2. As a homeschooling single mom, I can tell you the most important factor was teaching my son what it meant to respect “work time.” Not only do I get writing time, he learns self-reliance and self-discipline.
