Calling all working parents! Many of you are struggling to balance the overwhelming demands of work and family, especially in a time when BlackBerries and remote access make it even harder than ever to determine where work commitments end and home life begins. Tonight at 9pm ET/PT, OWN premieres a new series, Kidnapped by the Kids, which lets the kids call the shots for once.
In each episode of Kidnapped by the Kids, a workaholic parent is whisked away for a week of quality time with their kids, and given an eye-opening wake-up call about how their families are affected by their work lives. The experience culminates with a commitment ceremony where the kidnapped parent promises to stay better connected to the family.
Check out this extended sneak peek at an episode of Kidnapped by the Kids (and warning — keep tissues nearby):
