Kinderling News & Features

Neer Korn of The Korn Group is a respected social researcher and expert speaker on Australian social and consumer trends, which means he knows a lot about our culture and talks a lot about it! He's also a dad, and we ask him a bit about that part of his life.

1. What is your favourite thing about being a father?

Watching my son thrive in moments of laughter, play, challenge, negotiation, resilience that tell me he’s doing just fine.

 2. What’s your favourite thing to do with your children?

Bed time where we read and make up stories and, as he puts it, “chit chat.”

 3. What is the thing you miss most about life pre-children?

Being free of that sometimes overwhelming sense of responsibility for his wellbeing.

 4. What has been the biggest surprise for you about being a parent?

That while each and every stage of his development is exciting there is also much grieving for the stages now passed.

 5. What does 'me time' look like for you?

A good book on the Kindle and a latte.
