The perfect guide for parents who work from home May 29, 2007
Most books written by home office parents aren't FOR home office parents. Sure, you catch a glimpse of their struggles as they wipe away peanut butter puke from their keyboard while typing the next line. You get a vague sense of their concurrent chaos, but you never get the full-blown picture or a recipe for how they overcome their condition to move beyond survival to sustainable success. Lucky for us, Jennifer Kalita does.
This brilliant writer provides home office parents with a practical guide to home office parenthood. Her tone is real, her advice true. I found myself acknowledged within the first pages of her book. Being a home-based businesswoman with small children, I was on the writer's side from the moment I cracked the cover. Her witty, smart writing reeled me in and I was hers the moment she claimed home office parenting is a synergistic lifestyle assembled with tears, temporary insanity, mind-numbing tedium and a full-blown case of mutual respect. It is the basis of the entire operation.
My favorite lines include:
"Check your superman/superwoman complex at the door, and accept this truth [that you cannot be a perfect parent and perfect business person simultaneously]."
"You need to watch a movie and eat a bag of pretzels sometimes..." As simple as it sounds, we all need to hear this every now and then.
For anyone who wants to shout out "Just because I'm home doesn't mean I'm available," will find themselves in this book. Even better, they will find a way to improve their best practices to return to the joy borne of their decision to work from home in the first place. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's ever thought working from home would be a cakewalk.
