Family time: do you have working parent guilt?

I admit it.  I’m short changing my kids.  I promised myself that self-employment would mean spending more time with them as I could work flexibly.  Whilst it’s true that I can be there for the school run and sports day I’ve lost count of the number of times I sit next to my eldest son while he watches TV and I respond to emails or check my latest social media statistics.

Well, they say that the first stage of recovery is admitting you have a problem so at least I’ve got that bit out of the way.
