The first and the most important thing to be looked is the Childcare when you are at work.

It’s good that we have good range of childcare options. 

It’s important we choose the right one with the first priority being the child and then the ones that suit our requirements.

For most of us the first preference would be a trusted family member. If we have someone of our own that would be the best.

The other options would be a good crèche or a day care or a part time child care takers based on our budget and affordability or a full time maid/child care taker if you have to often take up business travels or if with unpredictable work schedules.

Work from home can be a good option, if available so that you can save travel time and can supervise the childcare at your breaks. Setting up a work space in advance at home with all prerequisites can come handy.

It is important to make sure that while working to keep you away from other distractions, thus making sure the benefit given is not misused.

This may turn you to be more committed to work and can make you more productive and loyal.

Hope these inputs can help you for a Better Parenting.
