Working from home can be challenging when you’ve got small kids. Vital conference calls are interrupted by gate-crashing toddlers, while productivity levels tend to dip when you have to rise from your desk at 15-minute intervals to attend to yet another blood-curdling scream.

That’s why at times you’ll need a sure-fire distraction. And let’s get real here you’re probably going to wind up rethinking your boundaries on screentime.

As Dr. Sean O’Leary, an executive member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Infectious Diseases told The New York Times in this article, “I think, for better or worse, what’s going to happen is the limits on device time are going out the window.”

That’s why it’s good news that the second series of Bluey is finally out this week on ABC Kids. Australia’s favourite show about a Queensland family of blue-heeler dogs continues to smash viewing records with a combined total of 179 million program plays since launch. Better still, in Bandit it features a dad character who’s your ultimate guide to fatherhood

The freshly rejigged ABC Kids app also include four bonus Bluey episodes. Trust us, you’ll need every one during the long weeks of self-isolation ahead.
