I guess the right balance depends somewhat on the nature of the work, and the nature of the child. But honestly, you cannot do two things at once. I work from home 40 hours a week. When I am working, I am working. There is no way I could also watch my 2 yr old son while I am working. It would be a disservice to him and to my employer. Working from home/"telecommuting" does make life more flexible - I can take time to go to the park or storytime. But when I do that, I am not working. The comment from jcmom is pretty snarky, but most of it rings true to me.
