Did you grow up with parent(s) who loved you but were not around a lot?
How did that impact you and the person you are today? How did it impact your relationship with you parents? What do you wish your parent(s) did differently? Do you think it is every possible to have a healthy family situation with parents who are gone a lot?

I am asking this question because I would to have children but I have a demanding work schedule and there is a high probably that future partners will also have a demanding work schedule. Also I am concerned if I had children I would spend too much time away from them and I have heard people talking about attachment disorder.
