Video conferencing in the children's room. How to make home office and childcare a success

Video conferencing and home office

Home office and looking after your own offspring at the same time didn't work even before the pandemic and before the lockdown. Here, too, Corona acts like a burning glass. Before Corona, children could go to a friend's house. You could hire a babysitter or maybe even rent a co-working space with attached childcare. All this is possible at the moment.

It's a good thing that many childcare providers have recognised this and added virtual childcare to their services. Now, via video conferencing, children are busy doing handicrafts, playing, romping or simply reading aloud together, and parents can devote themselves to their work. There is even the option of virtual homework supervision. Offers that are enthusiastically accepted by workers and employees, but also by the children.
