Working Parents Day

This must be some sort of oxymoron. Anyone who has ever parented knows that whether or not you have an extra job outside of the home, you are always working. The days are long gone when most moms stayed at home. Now parents work… at home and elsewhere. The parenting job is full-time. It’s called responsibility. So today we salute all working parents… as if there was some other kind. Try to be focused on being good to yourself in whatever moments of calmness come your way. You do need to recharge your own batteries, too.

“The best inheritance a parent can give his children is a few minutes of his time each day.”

— O.A. Battista (1917 – 1995)
Canadian chemist & author
