Know Your Free Hours
Know the times when you are least occupied by household chores and the kids. These will be the times in which you can do the job without any interruption. Like a normal office job, it is very important that you keep timings and maintain a small office to get the right feel. Also, do nothing related to the house during these hours. They may be four instead of eight but they should be purely office work ones.
Seek Help from Family
There will be times when you will need to engage help from others in order to get the job done while you have a family, particularly younger kids, to attend to. The best way to go about is to seek the help of a sibling, your parents or in laws to look after the kids. This will be a stress release for you and will also save you from the extra cost of a baby sitter as this will only happen once in a while.
Full Time vs Part Time
See which suits you more. Full time work will require a lot of dedication and will be hard for a mom to do particularly when working from home. On the other hand, part time work will get you less money yet is a source of reduced stress. It is a bit of a catch and depends on how well you can manage things and your time.
Type of Work
There are certain office tasks that can be very easily be done from home even when you are not completely busy with it while there are others that require you to be vigilant at all times and need a lot more dedication. You need to know as to which one of these you can perform without much trouble while keeping the rewards of both in mind.
