Working from home with kids

We know that while everyone is in lockdown, many will be worrying about how to manage working from home whilst looking after children. We’ve put together some handy tips and tricks that should help make this challenging time that little bit easier!

9 top tips for working from home with kids during Coronavirus lockdown


Looking for support, not judgement?

We'll give you the reassurance you need to parent your way.

Check in to see if you need to re-think your daily schedule, start by:

And remember to trust your instincts and try to stay positive!
