There is a danger in turning any single commentator into a spokesperson or star, and we should avoid it.

What I've Learned Being a Working Mum

Kay Burley | Posted 06.04.2016 | UK
Kay Burley

I've been a news presenter all of his life. Does he think his childhood suffered? Well, over supper he reminded me how I'd left him and his friends celebrating his birthday while I jetted to Spain on a last-minute assignment. He's mentioned it every birthday since. He also highlighted how I wasn't always at home to cook supper. Or sometimes went to dangerous places including Libya where he could hear gunfire in the background as I reassured him on a satellite phone that all was well. Oh... My advice - accept you won't always get it right, but do the best you can and certainly don't be bowed by those who want to beat you with the guilt stick. Especially late night talk show hosts. Instead, ask yourself while they're working who is looking after their kids???
