How about telecommuting when the dependents are teenagers, not small children?

Well, the fact is that most teenagers don't really want to see any more of their parents than is necessary - and sometime the opposite is true also. But parents of teenagers are often uncomfortable about having those "big kids" home alone after school. Even though they are old enough to care for themselves and be left alone safely, there's always the possibility of problems developing when teenagers have too much idle, unsupervised time on their own.

That's why many parents who couldn't telecommute when their kids were younger will find this option appealing as their kids move toward and into their teenage years. Working parents with infants or toddlers around just can't do a good job at parenting and working at the same time, but parents of teenagers are much more likely to be able to do so.
