Consider working part time at home

“The way I work is to spend the mornings at home and afternoons at work. At home I limit my work to thinking, researching, writing etc. Then I work in the office in the afternoon and do administration tasks and have meetings. That way I can still come home at the end of the day and have that ‘coming home feeling’ rather than feeling like I am returning to my office. Because of the way I have structured it I don’t come home to emails, phone calls and meetings – those have been handled at the office.” – John Dickson, writer, historian and minister

  • Can you find a way to do some of your work from home? Even a day or two a week?
  • When you work from home in the morning you are able to share breakfast as a family and participate in all your children’s morning activities
  • Restructuring your work day allows you to dedicate more time to your family.


Bond over chores

Give your children chores to do with you around the house – it’s a great way to spend time together and pass on skills and knowledge.
