The 3 “P’s” of the Working Parent: Patience, Permissiveness and Pizza
“Patience will see you through this”, a kinder, older and wiser soul tells you (okay, it’s usually Grandma). You know that she would never lie to you but you can’t see the forest for the trees. Yet you are forced into being patient, even against your will, as there is no other alternative. You have to continue taking care of your kids, working to pay the bills and doing laundry.
To this end, for most of us, “The 3 ‘P’s’ of the Working Parent” is more of a contingency plan than a well-thought-out strategy about being the best parent that we can be, and making the most sensible decision for our kids. Because in spite of our best intentions, we are tired, really tired and often don’t know what else to do.
