Someone thinks that taking care of children and work in the internet the same time is a good thing. As for me, it is better to focus on something one and do it nicely. It is an illusion that you can do all the things simultaneously. From my experience, it is clear to me that we should focus on the most important duties, as rise children.
Create a schedule. You’re borrowing their space, not the other way around.
I try and take out 2 hours out of my work day so I can give some time to the kids, have lunch, prep a meal, play games (though my wife is a superstar on this front and there is no way to match her pace) I try
Don’t count this time into the time you spent on the. This is the tax you pay to invade their space :)
Hope that helps

This is a tough one for sure. How old are your kids?
My youngest is 7 so he somewhat follows the rules set haha. It's like he has a timer that goes off every 10 minutes 22 seconds that says let me go ask daddy a random question.
Setting a feeding schedule and having approved snacks he can get on his own help. Also, I'm using a vase and when it's in the doorway I'm taking care of something and should not be interrupted. As long as it's not there too long it seems to work for the most part. He is 7 so I know it will not work all the time.
It's hard and distractions are part of the process. I just try to limit them as much as possible. Waking up earlier to get that needed quiet time helps too.
I hope this helps.
