The average cost of raising a child to the age of 18 is £150,753, apparently.
My eldest child Oscar, is 6 years old and between school, too many hobbies, holidays and the “gifts”…errr sorry “rewards” we give him for “doing well”, I reckon I’m close to that number already!
So, to claw some money back, errr…sorry, to teach him some “real” life lessons, I put him to work.
It was nothing to do with the fact it’s half term and my Mum’s on her hols, honest!
Genuinely, I was so proud of him though, as he was such a good boy, plus he really enjoyed it!
Joined the Directors huddle.
- Mapped out some new processes.
- Took a few breaks at lunch and either side to play wallie, smash a few balls down the pockets, mess about on the ipad.
- Set some new goals and objectives for the next month with Marketing and Customer Success.
- Reviewed customer feedback with our content and development team. Tim taught him what #cryptocurrency and a #will was! #teachertim
Better than homework, not as good as rugby and his favourite bit was eating a tasty pie and delicious caramel shortbread.
Good enough for me.
Some cracking takeaways and a photo collage to “show and tell” when he returns to school as well 😊.
