Weekly interviews, resources, and advice to help parents raise their little ones and make a living all under the same roof. We know being parents of little ones and working from home can quickly go from enjoyable to stressful within moments. Amanda and Dan from Parent Pacifier reveal their parenting wins, failures, and lessons they are learning along the way, so you no longer feel alone and can get a handle on the stress. Since 2017, they have been raising their son, all while working from home—Amanda, an employee telecommuting remotely, and Dan, a self-starting entrepreneur, often working late into the night. Each job already has its unique stresses, then add a baby in the mix; it only gets more complicated. Can you relate to potty training on breaks? How about keeping a small apartment quiet while on the phone with a client? Or the everyday struggle of somehow scheduling in meals, fun activities, and sleep? They will go into all that, and more so you can also make it through the day without burning yourself out. It's a mix of interviews, special co-hosts, and solo shows from Amanda and Dan you're not going to want to miss. So whether you have a newborn or have multiples, hit subscribe, and get ready to get a handle on the working from home Parent lifestyle.
