With four boys between 7-12 years old, Rory Shiner is knee deep in every dad! Rory joined the Brekky Show this morning to chat about taking your kids on your work trips.
With his work Rory has to travel often, as many dads do, and it can sometimes cause tension within the family.
Rory shared about an idea that came from Dr Bruce Robinson (another Dad Diary guest), to take your kids on your work trips!
Once his kids have turned 7, they get to choose a work trip that they can join dad on. It’s so rewarding and the bonding experience is unreal. It’s something they can look forward to, and the other kids share ‘their wisdom’ with the younger ones.
It’s a bit tricky in the sense that you have to figure out what they can do while you’re working or in meetings, but taking that bullet is definitely worth it.
