I managed to drag my son around to meetings and shoots, but then employed a nanny when I couldn’t. I work in Advertising and video production and it’s long hours, so it was a big juggle. When I say to other mothers we give birth to guilt, I’m definitely not joking.
It is important that we assist our children to develop delayed self – gratification, some of the research that is around suggest that children who are able to postpone immediate gratification are able to perform better in their studies.
My greatest challenge was to let go. Our children are on loan and for their own sake, it’s important to love from a distance in some ways, to be there when they need us and to guide when they are lost.
