    that is the worst possible thing i have heard in this forum in months.

    some of the most atrocious crimes in this world are committed by children whose parents went with the flow. Granted, with some children it works (by pure luck) I am sorry finally jaan but i really have an issue with this.

    you need to work hard to create an open atmosphere so that 'YOUR CHILD CAN GO WITH THE FLOW WHEN HE/SHE REQUIRES' not yourself go with the flow.

    My wife and I raised two boys as Mahbod said. Older one just graduated from U of T (wrote his last exam on Sunday) and second one will graduate HS and start university this year. Outright and brutally honest you will have to sacrifice quite a lot if you're willing to spend reasonable amount of time with your kid(s). I was at their every football (real one referred to as soccer in Canada), baseball, Karate, Piano, Drum sessions. I was on top of their education (math to be specific) every year and especiallay last two years of high school as the education system in Ontario is crap. So I had to forget about myself while I spent a lot of times with them and I am SO HAPPY THAT I DID SO. Nothing can replace the joy of seeing them grow up. Of course there will be those years (16-19) that they think you are their worst enemy and cause of their problems etc. but it'll pass. Two advices if I may:

    1. They require a lot of attention and time which means you and your wife will have less time for each other. MAKE TIME FOR HER in any possible way especially after the kids reach 2-3 years of age.

    2. Even though you should limit your own favorite activities or even let go of some but keep at least one thing that you will do regularly. Example in your case if you're playing tennis twice a day and go to gym every day change it to Tennis once a week and gym twice a week. YOU ARE GOING TO NEED IT. I personally sacrificed everything except my own football games. I reduced it from twice a week to once a week (back to twice a week now) but kept that 2 hours a week for myself so that I won't go CRAZY!

    It is funny how life is changed compare to 30 years ago where mom take care of the baby .... of course few mothers also worked but that wasn't the norm. Right now, we have to work from morning to night, pay for mortgage and cars and every moment is valuable with the kids.

    Yeah unfortunately iranian couples forget about each other ... it is super important to do things with your wife because life can become super monotonic and then after kids are raised you would feel that there is no relationship anymore ... super important in my mind

    I have a coworker who got one. Badbakht had to go through a back surgery, but they finally approved.
    If you have any sort of back issues (God forbid), you should be able to get it approved.

    With one kid you're managing your time really well. You may need to cut a bit from work as the kid grows older

    talk to HR.
    most companies approve it.

    even if they don't the whole thing costs around 400-500 $ (CAN). it is well worth it considering you spend most of your life at work

    Maybe I did not understand his question then. I don't think he asked how to raise his kid but rather how to continue doing what he is used to while raising his child. There is no school or training you can take that prepares you for parenthood. It is just an instinct which surfaces only after you become a parent. You will automatically do the right thing and change your priorities to make sure your kid(s) come first. That's the flow I'm talking about and you can only grasp it when you are a parent.
