The decision of staying at home with your kids is probably the main reason why giving up your day job entered your mind so spending the entire day in front of the computer defeats this purpose. In relation to this, you must be able to set your boundaries.

Working from home does not necessarily mean everything is done for your family’s sake, although this can be partly true. What it takes to be effectively working from home is being able to look after the needs of your family, income-wise and emotionally, yet without sacrificing your personal needs. Indulgence is one thing that you should reward yourself for being a levelheaded mom and career woman.
