WLB advice needed, fishes. When my kids (9 and 7) weren't at school, my job was AMAZING with letting me disappear from meetings to dispense snacks and just generally keeping a whacky schedule because I needed to take care of my kids since they were home all the time. With schools back to in person learning my job is understandably tightening up expectations again, even though we are still working from home. My kids don't understand/ like it AT ALL and when they get home from school they just want daddy and feel like I'm ignoring them. What do I do??

What time do your kids get home from school? I would try to set a time where work stops for the day, making sure to stick strictly by it.

Give them 30 min undivided attention, then cut it off and get back to work and enforce that.
Separated home office helps me a lot (detached garage). Maybe for while, depart for a cafe for an hr or rest of day.

Awe that is so hard. Could you have a nanny help out during the time when you still need to be working? I have found this to be a HUGE help in keeping them distracted.

That is hard, but you have to explain to them why you're working in the first place. Make them understand that you're doing it for them, and that you'll hang out with them soon. ANd please do hang out with them to not lose that connection. But your family has to get over that adjustment period

Makes sense, but why should I condone their homophobia then? What are your thoughts?

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.
