Put family first

“My advice for young fathers is to always put family first, ahead of work. If you keep that rule in your mind it makes it easier to make lots of decisions. If you just keep that as a priority it will work well for you. I always tell people at work where I am, so there is no mystery about it.” – Peter Le Soeuf, professor of paediatrics

  • Whenever there is a clash between work and family, family comes first
  • Be transparent at work about where you are
  • You may even inspire other fathers to do the same!
