The Back-Up Plan: How to Handle Kiddie Illness
However, not everybody can do their job from home, which is why a back-up plan is so important. Check with friends, family or neighbors and find someone who is willing to care for a sick child in an emergency. Offer a favor in return so that the arrangement is mutually beneficial. If you have nobody you can rely on, ask around at parties and school events for anybody who is looking to make extra money. You might get lucky and find your back-up. Get the majority of your work done at the beginning of the day so that if your child does need to go home sick you won't get behind. Be proactive. If your child seems to be coming down with something, get him to bed early. Feed him vitamin C.
