With spring break around the corner, many working parents often struggle with balancing child care while working a full-time job. Remote working environments can be a blessing and curse when it comes to the added care that is needed. While kids are excited to have a break from school, it can be hard for parents to adjust, especially if they are raising a special needs child.
Adjusting to New Environments.
If you’re raising a special needs child, you are well aware that environmental change can play a large part in your child’s attitude and behavior. The excitement of being home, coupled with the lack of schedule and structure, is always challenging for the parent. In addition, if you are able to work remotely it can take time and energy away from the care required in raising a special needs child.
Things to Consider.
It’s important that you set expectations and have a plan before the week begins. Set clear expectations with your company and management. It’s OK to let everyone know at work that your home situation will be altered. It can be a challenging time, and it’s important to vocalize your concerns and needs. If you are a parent that is working full-time outside of your home, it’s important to have child care lined up.
Whether or not you have an immediate family member that can step in or require daycare services, it’s important to set a plan and be able to stick to it. If you are still struggling with balancing work and child care, it may be a good idea to consider daycare therapy services.
