Time Spent With My Kids Is Worth The Work
Time Spent With My Kids Is Worth The Work
08/10/2015


Dear Dr. Laura:

I am fortunate to have been raised by a mom, whose job was to raise my sister and me, and I know that I'm a better person because of it. My wife and I have two young children and both of us have the opportunity to be at home with our children. My wife works part-time at home and I work full time at home with occasional travel. While this arrangement isn't without its occasional hardships, the benefits far outweigh the minor inconveniences. My wife and I love being able to spend more quality time with our children and share the responsibility of care. It really has been a wonderful experience.

Anyone in your listening audience who has the opportunity to work from home (even part-time) should jump at the chance. While there are many jobs where this isn't an option, some employers extend this option because it is a benefit to them as well. Spending more time with the kids, sleeping better, feeling better overall, as well as spending less on gas and car maintenance or going out to lunch are just the few benefits I have enjoyed.  I've found that I'm more productive at home as well. I can find a place to work and get things done without co-worker distraction and time wasting commuting.  

Thank you for all of the wonderful work you do and for truly caring for people. I tell people that you are frank and succinct and you tell people what they NEED to hear, not what they want to hear.  

Eric
