Business Travel: Leaving the Little Ones Behind
Business travel, a seemingly inescapable aspect of today's corporate culture, presents special challenges and opportunities for parents.
Corporate jaunts to exotic and not-so-exciting places offer chances to experience more of the world or order breakfast in bed, but for many of America's business travelers, even clinching an important deal can lose some of its luster when thoughts turn to missed moments with family members.
"It's a chance for you to be a great parent," says Dan Verdick, frequent traveler and author of The Business Traveling Parent: How to Stay Close to Your Kids When You're Far Away. "If a family commits itself to having the energy and time to make the most of the situation, it can really be good."
