These are challenging times for people in every profession, but legal professionals face unique issues. Unlike others who are working remotely and may be able to easily handle an interruption during a conference call, when a court reporter or attorney is taking a deposition from their home, it is necessary for the room they are in to be as close to silent as possible. This means those legal professionals who are caregivers for young children and no longer have their usual child care options during work hours face a dilemma.
What’s a mom or dad to do when they need quiet, but want their kids to be learning at the same time? Luckily, there are some great children’s book authors, homeschool providers, and museums with online education options and activity ideas.
For those with younger kids at home, here are just a couple of the numerous free resources that are out there:
- Doodles with children’s book author Mo Willems
- Oliver Jeffers’ Stay at Home Storytime
- Other Goose offer for three weeks of free homeschool materials for young children
- Chicago Children’s Museum with suggestions for Recipes for Play at Home
Try out these resources and feel free to let us know if your little ones enjoy them. We hope this makes working remotely a little easier.
