Huh? How many moms with babies and barking dogs wouldn’t like dad working at home? And why the need not to have dad’s location given away?
My hubby has worked at home for years now and it’s been a blessing. No wasted hours spent in traffic, no gas expenses, wear and tear on cars, wardrobe, lunches, etc.
So many folks work from home now that no one pays attention or cares about a barking dog or crying baby. The dog and the babies are far better off with dad/mom AT HOME all day rather than a few frantic, exhausted hours in the evening.
You’re probably right - some would like those conditions, and some would not.
Giving dad’s location away?
There is a level of professionalism expected with many occupations, and crying babies and barking dogs just don’t have a place during those transactions.
Guess I’m called old fashioned.
I’m serious, tho, about having some sort of inexpensive ‘cluster’ offices - sharing a receptionist, for instance. This would keep people near home.
Happening as we speak, I’ll bet.
I don’t have babies, they are now 14 and just turned 18 (about to head to college come August) and DH has been working from home quite a bit over the last few months, mainly because his office has become a zoo but that is another story. I don’t mind for a day or two at a time but add that up with the weekends and I’m like go to work P-L-E-A-S-E . . . cuts into my routine. LOL
