The work world has changed and it is much more common for people to be able to work from home from time to time. What a beautiful thing. No rat race that day. Not traffic-laden commute. Just a workday from the comfort of the couch or dining table.

One of the best ways to make kids happy, while at the same time tiring them out, is to make sure they spend some time outdoors. When children have a great big backyard to run in they tend to be a bit more better-behaved too.

Technology has not only changed the way we work, it has also changed how we work. Throw on a wireless headset, grab your cellphone, log into wi-fi and do your work outside. Your kiddos will thank you for it.
