Sometimes our kids tell us what we need to hear.
“As a performance management consultant and business owner, I travel extensively. One day when I was particularly frustrated, I told my 8-year-old son how hard it was for mommy to be on the road all the time. He calmly put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘Mommy, it’s OK. I know you’re working for the family.’ In that moment I realized that my children knew I was not trying to purposely be away from them, but that I was doing my job. I felt better knowing they were OK with me traveling for work.” — Gina Ohanesian, President and Owner, Performance Alternatives, LLC
