The truth is more and more parents are working from home post-COVID.
One study showed that 67% of employed people in Australia sometimes or always work from home. It also noted that 49% of parents who work from home report that they find it difficult to strike a balance between work responsibilities and their parenting duties.
Let's shine some light on the experience of working from home with a baby or young child and cover some top tips to help make the juggle a little easier.
In Australia, working parents who are caring for school-aged or younger children are entitled to request flexible working arrangements. However, you will ned to have worked for your current employer for at least 12 months.

If you're working from home with a child - whether they're a newborn, older baby, or toddler - it's important to set clear priorities, have realistic expectations, and remember to take some time for yourself now and then.
Let's cover some tips that may help make juggling work and parent life a little more manageable.
