If you’re a dad and you’re struggling with your work life balance, it’s important to know that you can get help.
Life can be better!
Generally, society still tends to expect dad to be ‘provider’ and mum to be ‘carer’.
We talk about dads ‘babysitting’ when they are just being parents.
Mums will get asked “who will be looking after your children when you go back to work?”
But times are changing
New dads don’t necessarily want to spend their paternity leave checking their email before starting their new role of trying desperately to be home for bathtime and worrying about what they are missing out on.
BTW… This isn’t a pop at you
I know some of you are reading this and it’s got your back up.
This bloke is having a pop at me.
I work hard to provide a great standard of living for my family, I make sure the time I spend with my family is quality time.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not saying that you shouldn’t be at work earning a living to provide for your family.
Hell, someone needs to earn the money and if your work life set up works for you that’s awesome.
In fact drop me an email and share your story and inspire others.
Nah, i’m not talking to you.
To be fair I’m talking to the bloke who’s feeling the stress, the anxiety, the pressure of a work life balance that is failing him and his family.
It’s time to get it sorted.
