"Tip for working from home with young kids..... (from someone who worked from home for 18 years.)  Kids may not understand the difference between you being physically accessible and you being available. I put a command hook on the outside of my office door with 3 signs, like a traffic light.  They easily understood that the green light meant they could come on in and talk to me, that the red stop sign meant not to interrupt unless there was a fire or someone badly hurt, and the yellow triangle meant to knock very softly and wait patiently. It worked wonders for everyone, especially by reducing their confusion and frustration."
