With the caveat that not every profession or position is suitable for working from home, I'm quite certain that it should be totally normal.
I have worked remotely, including from home, for many years, and have always advocated for it.
In my line of work (systems administration, DevOps, that sort of thing) having to go to the office to work is actually detrimental, in terms of efficiency. Commute time (even though my commute used to be 8 minutes on the motorcycle, and now is 20 minutes - for people with cars or on the public transport it can be hours, including traffic jams) is generally wasted time - even if you can listen to podcasts or read a book, it is usually is not about getting work done. Office environment, especially with current predilection for open space designs, is absolutely not conducive to efficient work, in my case. Where at home I can have a nice lunch the way I like it at my own dinner table and be done with it (and spend some time with wife and kids if they are already home); at the office a lot of time will be spent choosing what to have for lunch today (especially in Israel :D ), then actually having that lunch and associated watercooler conversations will eat up even more. Mind you, I'm all for slow food approach and not having to rush or, God forbid, eat at my work desk. But all in all the pattern is that at the office my effective work time is cut down drastically by unnecessary routines and propensity to distractions (in part because it is not a kind of office where you can lock the door and go work).
Of course there are challenges in working from home, too.
It requires discipline, for starters. But I do presume that if you just watch Netflix instead of working, you'll soon lose the job. Again, if you can do your job and watch Netflix at the same time, that's a bonus!
Then you need to kit out your home office the way you need it. Chairs, displays, keyboards, speakers, web cameras, what have you. And, importantly, you must be able to isolate from the rest of your habitation, otherwise the same distraction problem will apply.
During the current lockdown the largest problem for people with kids is the child care, but there's no workaround for that anyway. You adapt, figure out shifts if both parents are working, balance out roles if one is not working (having to juggle kids IS a full-time work role, harder than many), etc.
But all in all, being able to work from home (and/or anywhere else but office) has so much more advantages for me than not, it can't even compare. It is normal and expected for me, and I'd like it to stay that way.
