‘I went from working 18-hour days to being a full-time parent overnight. Here’s what I’ve learnt.’

Steve has been married for 13 years. He has three primary school-aged children aged ten to five.

Up until recently, Steve’s business saw him out of the house at least ten hours a day. Running a business in events during peak periods, he would often work through weekends and it was normal to work 18 hour days. He missed most of the “day-to-day heavy lifting and logistics involved in running a house and family,” Steve tells Mamamia.
