How do you work your business around your kids?

Do you call working around your kids in the room ... home with you. Or do you get a baby sitter while you are working

  • I work a home business where I dont have to worry about if my kids are being loud or not. I would say that getting a sitter kind of defeats the purpose of being a work from home mom...?

  • ALL my customers know I am home with kids. HOWEVER I do plan 1 hour 1 night a week where I have my office hours. Hubby is in charge:) If I go out to a home party then Hubby is with them. If he's got plans (not often) we do have a sitter down the road.
    Do you have a home business you do or do are you looking?? Please consider Tupperware. it's fun easy and a way to get some adult conversation in. OH and you make your schedule.

  • I do all of my online work while the kids are around and then during nap time, outside play and crayon time is when I make my phone calls. They are pretty good about it.

  • I run a daycare out of my home. My children are my life. This was really the only way to spend a large amount of time with them and not have to pay for childcare or work outside the home. My kids need me... I'd rather raise my kids myself and not pay a daycare to do it. I am lucky that I can make that choice. Not all moms can. Some have to work outside of the home.
