Chapter 17 Making It Work Day to Day

Making your family-friendly arrangement work requires an ongoing effort. The option to work an alternate schedule represents a benefit, not an entitlement. You should treat the arrangement with respect and make sure you don’t take advantage of the opportunity.

With that in mind, you can take steps to make sure your arrangement succeeds.
