  • Get your kids involved when it's possible and appropriate. They can help unpack boxes or attach labels and stamps.
  • Create enough activities to keep them busy-and quiet. Set up a desk for hem near, but not necessarily in your office, so they can play business while you do it for real.
  • Hold a reading or writing contest to keep them quiet during work hours. Make sure the winner gets a fun reward.
