This post was made by a friend over at Solid Parent and I feel it really outlines the idea of being a present parent. Not those kinds of parents that are just on their phones the whole time, or sticking their kids in front of the TV screen. Something that we really try to avoid at home.
How important is it to have time off? Family time is incredibly important for a good healthy work-life balance. As a self employed worker it's very difficult to strike that balance, but we need to try.
