Without going into too much detail, let me tell you that anyone who thinks that working from home is EASY is wrong, wrong, wrong.
I just spent far more hours than I care to think about dealing with puberty-related drama on a website full of hormone-soaked teens and tweens.
And while it could have been much worse, it's so stressful.
Parents of older children, let me please ask something of you. Know what your kids are doing, and when. Know what their devices are capable of. I see hair-raising things in my work, and have death with suicide threats, self harm, and more. It's not fun.
I know you can't control everything your kids are doing, but never think for a second they're "safe" because they're on a kids' site. In this case, this kids are closely monitored and we care a great deal about them, but that isn't always the case.
Just be careful.
And I swear, I'm writing a book on this.
