This year, the International Family Day highlights the need to strike a balance between work and family. These were the words of the Secretary General of the United Nations in the message of the International Day of Families.
A unique opportunity to reflect on the role of parents in the family, divided between the obligation to work and financially support their children and the need to have time to educate children and give them all the attention they need during childhood.
The relationship between the members of a family forms the most powerful affective bond that exists. Achieving a balance between work and family is a goal that we all set ourselves and that some of us arrive at with more difficulties than others. Along these lines, Forbes magazine has taken the opportunity to surprise its audience once again with the publication of one of its famous lists.
