    There are so many useful and applicable points here! My favorite was “At home, I try to focus on family.” I like to think of the workday as a 24-hour clock, taking an hour off here or there to be with my kids and then hopping back on the computer at night so I can do the work that I missed. Getting back to work after these short breaks with your spouse and kids won’t be as difficult now that you have spent a few extra minutes with them. Kei Nomaguchi, PhD, associate professor of sociology at Bowling Green State University says even just 20 minutes of your attention makes a difference. Further, its important to let your kids know how much you love your job. This helps them to respect you as a parent and as a businessperson they could look up to. –Allison O’Kelly, founder/CEP Mom Corps
