Last April, I recorded several videos with Working Mother magazine about “sticky situations” working parents face. I am happy to be able to share them here!
This sticky situation – “I want to volunteer at school with my kids, but I am short on time!”
Here are my tips. I tend to be suspicious of all absolutes, such as “working parents have no time for volunteering.” As I am currently studying the schedules of SAHMs (more on this later) I am seeing that while people may have regular involvement with school, it is never every day. It is often not weekly either! Occasionally is fine. And just about anyone can manage “occasionally.”
