A friend of mine, who is a jewelry designer who works FROM home, often complained about this problem. Her biggest problem time was summer, when other people thought she should be endlessly looking after their children, "since you are at home anyway." She had to be very firm in order to get any work done and people resented it. She has fewer problems now that her boys are teenagers.

My husband and I both work from home also. No matter where you work, juggling sick kids and snow days and job responsibilities is hard!

I think a lot of stay-at-home parents deal with this. Working at home - as both a parent and a parent/employee/self-employed person is still work!


I agree that working from home is a balancing act. And holidays--when you're office is in your home it's sometimes hard to take time off.
