As newsletters from Microsoft continue to fill my inbox day in day out; I came across one of them that could help others from going insane.

If you’re experiencing “challenges” getting work done while at home and you have children in the “younger” age range, the Educator Center at Microsoft might help you.

The Family Learning Center at Microsoft has a slew of activities to keep kids busy while you try to get work done.

I suggest you look through them first before handing your kid the tablet. If the activity is a level above where your kid is at, the whole idea becomes completely counter productive.

They’ll keep annoying you asking, “what’s this” and “what’s that” and “what’s next” which won’t help you with getting work done.

Good luck.
