As a parent working at home, you know that there are just some things that are impossible to do when the kids are around.
You have a couple of choices:
*wait until they're 18 and move out of the house so you can get on with your business
*send them to boarding school so you don't have to deal with them at all or
*find another work at home parent and trade babysitting.
By trading off babysitting, you save money (no hiring babysitters). You are also helping out another parent in the same situation thus making the world a better place all around. Your children will have other children to play with (for them it's a "playdate") while you're able to get important business finished.
