One of my first bits of advice for anyone pondering working from home is that you definitely need childcare for any kids too young to watch themselves. While yes, you are physically in the house, odds are you’ll wind up constantly distracted.
Of course, when COVID-19 closed schools and offices, many people had no choice, and wound up dealing with just that issue.
Today’s guest, Susannah Quinsee, runs the educational technology and development team at her university in London. That meant, when the university went virtual in March, that her workload exploded…at the same time that her kids all came home too. In this episode, she talks about how she and her partner split the care of their four kids, and what she learned about productivity in the process.
Her family has also kept their old Legos organized by color so sets can be easily remade…you might want to listen to the episode for that bit alone!
