Q: I'm about to transition from working out of the home to working full-time in a home office. We've had a nanny for my 2.5-year-old since she was a few months old who we are keeping on and since the weather has turned colder, they'll be home a lot. I'm wondering how other moms or dads with a similar setup handle this - I'm worried my daughter will know I'm close by and want to be with me and also worried that I'll be tempted to look in on her at every cry or wimper. Should I lock the door and turn on music?
