I think the most important thing I'm learning is to roll with how things are from one day to the next, and not expect much. (My kids are 9, 12, and 15, two with autism.) They might pitch in with their makeshift schoolwork cheerfully one day and melt down over every single thing the next. Trying to stick to a routine for its own sake doesn't help them and frustrates me when they push back. Someone on a call I was on the other day had a suggestion I'm going to try: she breaks her day into two sections. Starts work early, gets a bunch of stuff done before 10, then logs out for three or four hours to help her kids with stuff. Then checks back in with work after they're done with their "school day". That middle section has no meetings, no nothing.

@RebeccaStevenson That is so wise! A client of mine does something similar gets up at 4:30 or 5 - works for two or so hours -does the breakfast and AM nap - she takes it too! The eat, set up kiddo - work - break and so it goes. TY for the convo!
