I don’t think I can ever leave my daugh­ter... I can’t live with­out her

that means go­ing to a coun­try where you can en­sure your chil­dren have a bet­ter fu­ture. My fa­ther did that for me, but I don’t think I can ever leave my daugh­ter. I will take her wher­ever I go. I can’t live with­out her,” he says, in a rush of emo­tions.

“It’s not easy be­ing a par­ent these days. I am lucky to have a wife who is hands- on with Jewel, but I try my best to do things with her, as much as I can. We go to the beach to­gether; I take her riding on my­bike; we go to the mall to­gether and even watch movies and car­toons to­gether. It’s the best part of any day for me,” says Jayson. “But I don’t think par­ent­ing has be­come any eas­ier. It de­pends on how much help you get from your part­ner and that’s very im­por­tant. Es­pe­cially in a place like Dubai, where both par­ents of­ten have to work, par­ent­ing be­comes a very spe­cial com­mit­ment — even more so for dads.”
