Parents Have Difficulties Working While Taking Care of Kids at Home
“Parents across Silicon Valley say they’re concerned they’ll be judged by peers who don’t have the same family obligations during work hours.”
Business Opportunity: There are many new services that are needed to help parents work more effectively at home. Here are some ideas off the top of my head.
Learning pods: neighborhood micro-schools for parents who don’t want their kids in public schools. Home learning centers: Kumon type of classes in public spaces. Outdoor classes: supervised activities for kids to play outside. Concierge Services: Help busy parents with chores. Nanny Services: Screened nannies to take care of children for a number of hours each day.
