3 Tips for Working While Your Child is at School

3

Whether you work for yourself, or as an employee at another organization, you may want to consider some tips to help you make the most of your working day. By taking on a career that allows you to work while your child is at school, you may be able to spend more quality time with them while still receiving an income. In many cases, this may not be as much as if you were to take on a full-time role, however, it can still be incredibly useful when it comes to paying bills and ensuring your family does not go without.

For those who have started their own business, or even work in a freelance capacity, it can be a good idea to consider how you will take payment for services provided or goods that you have created. For particularly large invoices, a client may not want to have that amount of cash on them. In this case, it can be more beneficial for them to pay by card. If your business involves you travelling to a client’s location, or working from home as opposed to a store, you may not have the traditional checkout setup available. One option that may suit your needs can be the use of mobile payment devices to take card payments from customers. You may also be able to print receipts, both for the customer’s needs and your own records, from that very same terminal.

If you would rather gain employment when your child is at school, you may want to really consider the type of role you opt for. Some jobs, regardless of the pay scale, can come with a lot of stress. As a parent, you may want to be able to be relaxed around your child, both before school and after they come home. Due to this, it can be beneficial to look for career paths that have a lower level of stress. This may also aid with stabilising and maintaining your mental health, which can be imperative to both work and raise your children to the best of your ability.

Even without a lot of stress in a role, you may still feel exhausted once your children get home, especially if you have also had to deal with cooking a meal and cleaning the house, on top of working. While it can be all too easy to justify having time for yourself, your children may want to interact and play with you. Looking into some simple things to do together when you are fatigued can still give your children the love and attention they desire, without needing to pull on your already-depleted resources too much. This can also be a great way to unwind from the pressures of work and school together.

Being a working parent can also allow you to be a great role model to your children, showing how education and skills can help you to generate an income and lead to independence.
