Head of human resources and logistics @ 3 + 3 kids
After a few years living in the fast lane, I decided to devote some time to care for my young family. Grateful mother of 3 and step-mother of 3, I assumed physical and emotional care of 3 children under 3, and of 3 teenagers on a part-time basis. Willing to give them the best possible care, I followed monthly parenting classes during 3 years and devoured every parenting book I could lay my hands on. The process is not completed yet but the semi finished products are very promising...
