Working From Home: My Personal Experience

Abbi Moore

There are a lot of difficulties when it comes to working from home. Some kids struggle when they’re not face to face with a teacher in a classroom. Two weeks ago, I actually experienced being sent home to isolate and I had to work from home. There could be many struggles with that. One could be not being able to get the help you need when you need it. Another might be not having all the right materials. Whatever it is, I’m sure a lot of kids could agree that working from home can definitely cause some stress. There are also some good things that can come out of working from home. 

For starters, there are fewer distractions. In class, sitting next to your friends could be a big distraction when you’re trying to work. If you get stressed out at home, you can take a small break from your work. At school, you don’t get very many chances to do that. But there, of course, are also some downsides when it comes to working from home. 

At home, you probably have more things to do. For example, you’re sitting down doing your math homework, and then your phone dings with a new notification. A lot of people would be tempted to check their phones. Phones and other electronics could be big distractions when trying to work from home. Or, if your house has a lot of people living in it, there might be some chaos and it probably won’t always be quiet. 

That could be a big distraction when you are trying to focus. Or, if you’re like me, you could get stressed with your work and want to give up. If you’re at school, you have your friends and teachers there to help you. Many kids could probably agree that working from home can be difficult and good.
