Remote work is great for families. I take my daughter to school before I start, I work. I take a short break to bring my daughter home from preschool. I get back to work. Throughout the workday, I'm taking short breaks to spend time with my daughter playing with her new toys, doing the laundry, some cleaning, cooking, taking a shower, even going out to buy something. There are no forms to fill out, no manager or someone to go to for approval, none of that 'working mother' rush you see stereotyped in movies. Working remote is the future and we need more options like this in more companies, businesses and organizations. In some remote companies the work-life balance sucks more (ie they are more sensitive to you leaving to take a break, or you need to be online every minute or some harsh rule like that) but I've found a better company with a better culture and rules.
