Eminem puts his daughter before career

Filed under: Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents

I often wonder how people who travel a lot for work deal with leaving their kids behind. Celebrities and regular folks alike who must leave home in order to work surely deal with guilt and anguish each time they pack their bags. I know I wouldn't want to leave my family on a regular basis and apparently, neither does rapper Eminem.

According to his rapper buddy 50 Cent, Eminem's 6-year-old daughter has made her feelings about daddy's traveling quite clear. "I've toured more than him because he has Hailey and he likes to physically be at the house. A lot of people don't know the reason behind him touring less - but Hailey would put boxes in front of the door thinking this would stop him going," 50 told MTV.co.uk.

That is kind of a sad picture and I respect Eminem for putting his daughter before his career. But unlike lots of parents, he obviously has a choice to stay home or not. Some parents don't have that choice and must travel as a requirement of their jobs. How do you deal with leaving your children when you have to leave home for business?
