Posted on: December 2, 2010

Being a mom is a full time job, so if you’re a work at home mom, it’s really important to find the proper balance your primary and secondary jobs (and hopefully, you’ll see raising your children as the primary :).

This balancing act is one that takes time and experience to succeed in; there will often be the pull to chose between the work projects seeking your attention and your attention seeking children. While no amount of preparation can get you ready for all of the hurdles you’ll encounter as a work from home mom, here are some ways to practically set up your home office to maximize both your jobs, and hopefully avoid some of the push/pull with your children.
