Work life balance?

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 23:44:53 GMT

Hi all. I was wondering how other people manage the work/life balance. I work full time as a teaching assistant. ... but being honest, for some time now have been questioning how long I can do this for. Sometimes (well, frequently ) I come home so knackered I feel I don't have enough energy for my own kids. ....that in turn makes me feel meh! Additionally working with children full time and with my own is becoming draining.... and work won't reduce my hours either.... how does everyone else manage? X

I ended up giving up my job to start my own business so I could be around more for my son. It is very difficult - would be interested to hear hoe other parents cope!

Happy to help you brainstorm here! What do you enjoy doing, and are good enough at doing that you could charge money for it?
