Caroline Manzo is taking to her Bravo Blog to express that she feels like her sons, Albie and Chris, work too hard and she worries that they don’t take enough time to enjoy themselves. Caroline explains her children grew up watching their father work 16 hour days and that’s not normal. She wants them to have a good work ethic, but find a good balance so they can enjoy life.
Caroline writes, “Al is slowly but surely finding his comfort zone in Hoboken. He’s grown to love the apartment, but isn’t 100% sure that he’s ready to make the move. Neither am I, so for now, we’re just floating back and forth and one of these days we’ll make a decision.
The kids are working hard, and I sometimes worry that they don’t take time to enjoy themselves. I’m all for sacrifice, hard work, and dedication, but I also think that we all need a little down time now and then to relax and enjoy life. Lauren is still with Vito and both my boys are always keeping me guessing regarding their dating life. I think I like it better this way, saves me a lot of stress! Regardless, they’ve grown up in an environment where Dad worked six days a week, 16 hours a day. To them, that’s normal. Newsflash, that’s not normal, but it’s worked for us because we found a way to make it work. I don’t want that lifestyle for my kids, I want them to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Find the balance, there’s a way to have both.”
