Message I took parental leave earlier this year to be with my 17 year-old daughter before, during and after a serious operation. I went on leave just after a reorganization was announced in my department and I was not happy with my allocated new role. I am so glad I took the time with my daughter as I worked a lot when my daughter was younger and was not always around when she was ill. It taught me patience and enabled me to give encouragement during her recovery and we grew even closer. When I returned to work, I went into my new role with renewed enthusiasm and it is proving to be reasonably OK. I think it helped that I had a long break (9 weeks) to get used to the idea.
