It's important to communicate your schedule needs to your employer. When everyone is on the same page, it's easier to schedule everything you need to do in your day.
- If you found yourself recently working from home and conducting homeschool with your children, you need to have a frank conversation with your boss. You want to make sure that you communicate to him or her, what is going on with your family. So if you are a single mom and you have two children at home, you want to make sure that you communicate that you have to manage homeschool duties and your work schedule before you just go and change your work schedule. You want to do that in concert with your boss. That way it'll be a lot more collaborative and you never know, your boss may be in a similar situation to you. So if you have a frank conversation upfront about what your needs are, first of all, more than likely your boss is going to comply with what you're requesting. And secondly, you're going to have a lot less stressful days because your boss is not going to be riding you because they understand that you're managing your children and your job. If you're working for yourself, be good to yourself. Maybe you work half a day instead of the whole day, you work when the kids are asleep, but just give yourself some time to adjust to your new schedule, communicate with your team or your boss and that way everyone knows what's going on. And no one will be putting unreasonable requests on you to deliver.
