When work-life boundaries are blurring, where are the kids in this picture?
We don't have a work-life balance anymore. We work from home (ever heard those little voices on the background during a phone conference?); our partners become our colleagues; we bring family to conferences...
I'm a mom of a 4 months old - just back to work, trying to figure out how he fits in the picture (or, to be more precise, how my work fits around him :)
I'd like to hear about your experiences of mixing kids and work and to think together where are we heading:
- Do you mix kids and work or do you keep those two worlds apart?
- If you do, then what and how? Does it work?
- What does it change? For you? For your work? For your kids?
- Is it good or bad?
- What do we need to have a healthy work-kids balance? What kinds of employers? Partners? Kids? Working conditions? Homes? Technology? Mindset?
I guess I'll be posting more on my own experiences and thoughts so far, but I'd love to hear any stories you might have.
