In a recent survey the biggest challenge facing working parents was balancing looking after their children and working. Or in the words of one parent “how on earth do I do this and homeschool my kids?”
When asked how they felt, the responses were an emotional rollercoaster of apprehension, guilt, stress and acceptance.

WOMBA coach, Alison Green, shares insights from her coaching work with parents and some thoughts and ideas on how to manage during these challenging times.
