Being a parent is one of the toughest gigs around: long hours, minimal training, lack of competitive pay and sometimes temperamental clients. However, despite this, it can also be one of the most rewarding jobs. Historically, it has been challenging for parents and caregivers to navigate and balance a life in which they work and…
