Being such a successful person John also describes how hard it is for him to leave his family nd go fro work as in an interview he gave to on 2015 he reviled much about how hard it is to balance his professional and personal lives. John says;

The family is crucial because there’s nothing more quickly humbling than trying to raise kids and be part of a marriage and a family…Other than that, reporting out in the country helps keep you in contact with people who live a life different from yours. You’re exposed to people with lots of different fears and challenges and hopes and passions, and that shakes you out of being consumed by your own concerns…Going to church helps too. I go to mass at 5:30 Saturday nights, at the church I went to when I grew up.”

In an article published in on 2013 John talks about coming home to his family after being on the campaign trail for 16 months. He says it’s like coming home to different people and you have to get to know them again, which he strives hard to do. He doesn’t want to have a distant relationship with his children such as the one his parents had with him. 

John also adds;

During my absence, I left express instructions that my son was not to approach puberty, but as I tie his tie I am met by his deodorant. He’s wearing something called Axe. They use it to repel rioting crowds, I believe. Once this gets up your nose, it’s like having a Billy Joel song stuck in your head. You can’t get it out…My son is trying to figure out who he is, shaping his identity for the first time. And hopefully, he and his sister will have lots of stumbles because I want them to be braver than I was. But you’ve got to get into position to play this role, which means catching up with these new people I’ve come home to discover. There is no fast way to do this. You can’t sit the kids down for an interview.

Well, we can say that John is a busy man and has a lot of commitment for his work as well for his family. He may not have time for them every time, but John makes's sure his children and wife get every second of his time when he is free.
