Be a coach

“One way that I make sure I get time with my kids during the week is to be the coach of one of their teams. That way I have to be there during the week for practice and every Saturday for the game. It is written into my schedule that at 3.30 every Wednesday I leave – no work, no meetings, no operations, nothing can be booked into that slot.” – David Wood, orthopaedic surgeon.

  • Being involved in your child’s activities means you are there on a regular basis.
  • Make that time a priority by scheduling it into your week.
  • Spend the time in the car in conversation with your child.
