You're trying to finish your report right before the deadline, but your kid is running around pretending to be a superhero. Or you want to sit down and watch some TV, but that's the moment you realize that your toddler broke it. Ah, the wonders of raising kids! It's a challenge, but there are things you can do so you can focus on your work.

For instance, Allyssa McCabe, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts, told The Atlantic that it's easier to keep kids busy during the workday without supervision the older they are. But for those readers out there who have young kids, don't panic just yet!

“For young children, independent play is tough. They really need social interaction. Parents will be tempted to hand over an iPhone or iPad or the like. This is understandable, but parents should also know that the younger the child, the worse this is for their language and cognitive development.”

@ my house it would be a cat teacher, the signs changed, 5 kids in the seats (two of which are three year old twins), plus 2 other cats. You may add the nanny as an aid, and the parents as guest speakers. It’s a good thing we found a 7 bedroom three story 4 bathroom rental house or I would be losing my friking mind right now. 😂

Well dogs and cats lick their own butts. This is true. But many homosexual humans--and even a few straight ones--lick buttholes, too. So I wouldn't get too carried away with hating pets for being dirty. Any least pets do it for hygienic reasons. Can't say that for the humans.

Instead of making your kid sit surrounded with electronic devices all day long, it's best to go for something that will actually help with their development. Give them art supplies or Play-Doh to get them creating!

Meanwhile, Michelle Martin, a professor at the University of Washington's Informations School and the founder of a children's summer literacy program, recommended that parents play their kids some audiobooks.

You'll be able to focus on work and your child will be engaged and learning. And the best part? While your kid's listening to Harry Potter, you can sneakily listen in, too, when you're taking a break. Now that's a win-win situation if we've ever seen one!
