Juggling Work and Family
Almost all parents struggle at some point with balancing their work and home responsibilities. Especially in a time when many parents regularly work more than 40 hours in a week, and kids are getting busier, it can be tough to feel connected with your family. But by being intentional about making parenting a priority and making it a point to spend time with your kids, you can find the balance of working and parenting that works best for you and your family.
