Take short breaks during the day to play a game, have a snack, or go for a walk together. Use these moments to connect with your child, listen to their questions or concerns, and show them that they are a priority in your life, even when you're working.

  3. Share Your Work Day: Throughout the day, involve your child in your work tasks to the extent possible. This can be as simple as letting them join your virtual meetings, or complete assignments. You can also explain the projects or tasks you're working on and how they contribute to the company. This can help your child gain a better understanding of your job.

Encourage them to share their thoughts, feelings, and feedback about the day. This can be a great opportunity to reinforce the learning, discuss the importance of work-life balance, and bond with your child.
