Count the cost of living unbalanced

“In the past I have been the classic overworking idiot who has worked so hard that when he goes on holidays it takes him three weeks to relax, and then he goes down with the ‘flu. That doesn’t happen to me now.” – Daniel Petre, entrepreneur and philanthropist.

  • Sometimes the decision to sacrifice work for the children will cost money, but wouldn’t you rather be poorer and a good father?
  • If you decide you always want to be with the kids you can find time.
  • Living unbalanced may earn you more money but there are other ‘costs’ to take into account.


Love needs to be shown

Showing affection to your children builds confidence and encourages affection towards others.


Socialising with your children

Don’t plan too many social activities for your time with your children; leave plenty of time to just hang out with your kids.
