How does a freelancer manage that situation when a family member is sick to get work done too?
Hi I have been working long time as a freelancer. And I faced several critical situation for several reasons. For example: Last year, I had sickness and I had to leave my freelance work for one week and those days many buyer cancel order and many more buyer query by PM why I do not deliver order within due time? Even few buyers also told me sickness not of my concern while heard I was sick.
In addition, last week my son was getting sickness and he suffer by high fever. So, I need to go to doctor chamber for taking prescribe and I must to give time for my son for look after. Because, he is my first priority rather than any work. I think all people give most priority for his family, especially while someone getting sickness.
So, I had to very busy for my son and my freelance work was hampering too much. Though, I worked very little in a day at least managing few emergency work situations etc.
So I'm asking as a freelancer what you will do, if you face such situation where you must be away from work for your family due to sickness?
