Rewarding Parents – How Much Can We Earn For Our Favourite Job

Being a parent is the most rewarding job in the world, as well as life changing. It comes with the tears, the tempers and the tantrums, but the love and unconditional pride you feel whilst cooking meals that may not get eaten and tidying toys that will be broken is priceless.

I have never been one for bucket lists in life, and I have certainly never been the sort of person that would have extreme activities on a bucket list. Saying that I feel I have probably missed out a bit and in the next period of my life I would like to change that and be a bit braver. I think the most dangerous thing I have done at times is go on a rope swing across a river. Yes, I know. It’s hardly the most adrenaline rush activity of all time!
