Handling Childrens Sports when Self Employed

How are you handling the mix of responsibilities of running your own business and managing the family?

For example the time required for children’s afternoon sporting practices.  If you have more than one a week, it can mean large blocks of time taken from being productive.

Why not multitask? Is it 100% necessary for you to sit still the entire time, avidly watching or chatting away with other parents? Instead for example you can walk the perimeter of the sports field a few times, getting a little exercise in but also reading work papers, writing, thinking, brainstorming. You could bring your laptop and yes, sometimes sit in the car. This was before smartphones. Think of what a difference they make now!
