Challenge

How can I still spend time with my children even when I'm away on a trip or busy?

"I often take business trips and cannot see my children for a long time. When I'm away, I can call them but my youngest child isn't talking much yet. I feel very far away from my family."

Solution

Use video chat.

Say good night to your children via video chat.

For young children who aren't talking yet, using video chat means you can talk and see each other. You can feel closer to your family, even when busy at work.
