LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Many people have been working at home while managing to parent their kids as they juggle distance learning.

Chris Tamura, the executive director of HR at a biotech company and instructor at UNLV, talks with Monica O. Jackson about handling double duty.

Here’s some tips he offers:

  • When presenting on a conference call: establish rules or signals to avoid interruptions
  • Try and schedule breaks where the family can take a walk outside
  • Do not apologize for distractions. Try and continue without drawing attention
  • Understand that you are not alone in adapting to this environment
  • Take a virtual vacation and time off to recharge and spend time with the family
