I'm with you Rosina. What I find interesting is that parents who both work definitely seem to have a feeling of guilt over not being there, which results in children staying up too late at night to experience 'quality time' with parents when they would otherwise be in bed fast asleep. It also means weekend are full of treats and entertainment rather than just everyday life. I'm not criticising - I'm sure I would have done the same - but it is hard. A good friend (and top City lawyer) says she feels when her son really needed her was when he was a teenager and basically being brought up by his grandparents to whom he was very very close. Sadly they both died much too young and this has definitely affected him adversely. Had she not gone back to work she would never have achieved the position she now has - but it was at a cost. Too late now to re-think. It is not easy for anyone.
