What to do when you want to program and the children distract you or your partner shouts?

    Ah the Amazon method

    Thankfully, I am the loudest person at my house. I've also had instances where I've lived places for years and no one knew I was there, so that's saying something.

    The only issue I ever have is my son turning on the television too loud, but that's just a text message.

    @sudocode maybe this also a good idea or, I think try to focus on your programming by ignoring them and try not to get involved with them and maybe they will get bored and not disturb you after sometime.

    Ask nicely
    Command sternly
    Storm out of the room

    Then: Go into whatever room they're not in and lock the door. Works until one of the children starts banging on it. The only two places I can go is his room and the master bedroom. One is his, and mine leads to the only usable bathroom, so it's not like I can say no. 😑

    We need a bigger house.
    And a yard so they can go outside. It's all desert and scorching heat here.

    Get a bigger house and a babysitter / maid.
