You leave your baby with the in-laws and take him home only on weekends, because you and your husband work long hours.
Will your little one suffer because you’re not there every day?
“In an ideal world, a child would be nurtured and cared for by a stay-at-home parent, but that option may not be possible in real life,” acknowledges Alfred Tan, CEO of Singapore Children’s Society.
Nevertheless, parenting is a journey – a long journey in which you should focus on key milestones.
“Being with your baby on weekends and public holidays are moments where you create those milestones in his life,” Alfred advises.
“Spend them wisely – and generously, with all your heart and time – and you will have your child, always.”
