In Episode 55, Christine and I respond to a letter from a listener who is struggling with the day-to-day pressures of being a work-at-home parent. We share 9 tips for getting stuff done and the constant (read: exhausting) mental juggle required to flip between work mode, home mode, and parent mode.
