Dear boss of dad: emotional letter of a girl asking for more conciliation

The conciliation it is a pending subject throughout the year and in summer it is even more accentuated. With the arrival of this time the youngest of the house finally receive the well-deserved rest. However, schoolchildren encounter a problem once they start their summer holidays: their parents do not enjoy this free time and those planned plans become almost impossible due to the work schedule that the elderly must fulfill.

In this sense, children become the victims once again of the lack of work conciliation that prevent that when the youngest of the house have all the time in the world, the older ones can not dedicate themselves to them. This issue is the one that deals with the letter that this girl sends to her father's boss explaining that although she has several ways to have fun, none equals spending time with her father.


Dear boss of dad

The letter written by this young woman has a clear addressee: the boss of her father. First, she introduces herself and explains that she is Lucía, the ten-year-old daughter of José and Mari Carmen. This girl tries to explain in this letter that even if she has a television, a video game console and her pet's company, her evenings are too long because there is someone missing at home: dad and mom.

This letter also tells us that although he does everything possible so that when his parents arrive he has everything ready to go down to the park and enjoy together. However, despite everything, it is not easy for him to carry out all his tasks alone because, as he says in this letter, his tasks can be difficult, especially "divisions with decimals".


For this, Lucia proposes a solution to her parents' boss: half an hour of food is Lucia's answer to the lack of time her parents have. And for that, he directly sends his father's boss a rich three-level sandwich that will serve to make the time lost with a good lunch, serve to devote to the smallest of the house. 30 minutes that give life to many families.
54 minutes a day

Perhaps dedicating only 30 minutes to lunch can serve many parents to save time for their children. In fact, the club of Malasmadres expose that 54 minutes per day the free time available to a working woman has to spend with the smallest of the house. Not even an hour to take advantage of this time of year in which children can enjoy their parents and mothers more than the rest of the year.

A task in which companies must put the batteries and bet to include the conciliation in their policies. In fact, a report by the Más Familia Foundation reveals that approximately 61% of companies operating in Spain do not take into account this issue, which is so essential but which has so little attention from the managers of these businesses.


Something that is making young people like Lucia see how their afternoons could be busy with many activities in the company of their parents. Something that could be gained with such simple decisions as reducing lunch time so that all this time ends up being invested by those who need it most: children.
