Iroko TV founder Jason Njoku and his wife Mary, are not leaving their parenting to chance despite their busy schedule and many travels.
To help bridge the gap and make up for their absence at home, the couple has developed a clear set and simple rule to help them communicate with their kids.
Jason Njoku in a Tweet shared the tip he calls a #Lifehack, saying that wherever he or his wife are between 7-8 am, 3-5 pm and 7-8 pm, they stop what they’re doing and check-in with a video call with the kids. “I walk out of meetings for these calls. Priority #1”, Jason adds.
#Lifehack. Mrs Njoku and I spend 50%+ of our time travelling so we have pretty clear communication rules. Where ever I (or we) at 7-8am 3-5pm and 7-8pm we we stop what we see doing and check in with a video call with the kids. I walk out of meetings for these calls. Priority #1. pic.twitter.com/hwq8HjJbEJ

As a parent or soon-to-be parent, what do you think about this rule? Would you emulate this tip by this couple? Is technology helping parents catch up with lost time due to work?
