Raising Children:Working from Home to Take Care of The Kids
2007-05-25
Name: Editor Do you think your job leaves you little time for your children? Are you planning to quit your job in favour of working from home? Do you have any tips or experiences to share with parents who are planning a shift towards self-employment?

Working from home means a lot of discipline in your routine, absolutely not a bed of roses...but yes, it is a boon for me (a new mother) as I am not worried about my baby not being looked after properly...but I do miss the interaction of a work environment.

I think working from home is the best option until children are school going age. one can always go back to working in an office after that. it doesn´ t have to be a permanent arrangement. that way, you can have your cake and eat it too.

I believe it is up to you, your approach, skill and committment. if you have set your heart on working from home nd are willing to put in what it takes, there is absolutly no reason why you can' t meet your goals. Find out whether you have it in you to be your own boss.

Does working at home affect the quality of the deliverable or does it enhance it. Working at home involves additional cost of overheads, electricity so on and so forth. What about technological resources scanners and so on ud have to invest if you didnt own them yet. The saving mentioned in the article might not be enough to offset these expenses. What say?

Yes there will be more expenses. But you will be compensated in terms of no travel, ease of environment and flexibility of schedule. So it comes to the same thing.

Don´ t wish to discourage you, but suggest you read the article more objectively and consider carefully before taking the plunge.

The article nowhere suggests that working from home is all rest an no work.

The article somewhere implies that it is the mother who should be doing the shifting. In my opinion, the parent who has the job better suited to working from home should do it.

Subject:  For some industries
I think this is an ideal option for some industries only. Thinks like graphic design, writing and analysis of market research data can be viable options. However what if you are in the field of banking or medicine. This is not an easy or viable option in those fields, which means you need to train yourself in new skills.

I disagree with Arundhatti. Lets see you try to learn about technical analysis, do forex transactions like swops or try and handle event management or something like that. Learning is on the field interacting with people. Text book and online learning is limited but happens, is more theoretical

I agree. For high-powered jobs this isn´ t an option. it is lucky if the mother is talented in a creative field. But what if she isn´ t? My take is that better a hectic life than a boring one. better a full time job than no job at all.

Career tracks are not well defined if you freelance or work at home. In the long run working in an office is more profitable for your career.

Hi, Ive been freelancing from home for a while now. It' s completely different from working in an office, you don' t have the personal interaction with colleagues. True you can do things like listen to music while you work. Small children' s needs interrupting with your work is one of the many challenges you face, especially if you are a working mum.
