EPISODE 286 Before you had children, traveling for a work trip was no big deal. Maybe you even looked forward to the time alone and the opportunities it provided for you! When you have children, the dynamic changes. Finding a balance between being a good parent and fulfilling your work obligations is difficult, but not impossible and here are some tips to help you today! Listen for a list of things you can do before you leave, while you’re gone, and when you return home to strengthen the relationship with your children while still being a good employee.

 

CONTENT WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
There are 3 periods of time to focus on when strengthening your relationship with your children while having to jet off for work trips: pre-departure, while on the road, and returning home.

 

PRE-DEPARTURE

  1. Tell your kids about the trip you need to take ahead of time (2 or 3 days in advance.)
  2. Let your children know how long you will be gone in language that they understand.
  3. Research your destination with your children.
  4. Let your children help you pack.
  5. Leave some notes around the house for your children to find while you are gone.

 

WHILE ON THE ROAD

  1. Video chat one day while you are gone (keep it short and sweet if you don’t have time!)
    1. Ask them specific questions pertaining to their day.
  2. Document your travel with photos to send through text message.
  3. Mail a postcard if you are going to be gone for more than a couple of days.

 

RETURNING HOME

  1. Bring home a cheap gift for younger children.
  2. Respect the family rhythm.
  3. Re-establish connection with children individually.

 

QUOTES BY CHRIS
