Leave the Work at Work
This guideline is as much for you as it is for them. When you’re home at the end of the day or on the weekends, keep the laptop closed, the folders away, and your smartphone out of reach. Kids can tell when they aren’t getting your full attention, and they may start to misbehave as a result. Make sure you’re showing them that the time you spend with your family is just as important to you as the time you spend at work, so they don’t feel like they’re coming in second to your job.
