Special needs dad here. I know exactly what you mean. So much guilt-tripping about leaving work to accompany my kid at the hospital, therapy, whatever. "Isn't your wife with her?" Yes, but that's not the point. My family is more important than my job, but so many people have that backwards.

Now come on Ben, obviously you would have done a better job coding that thing at 3pm in the office instead of 6pm at home after picking up your kid from school.

...Oh wait.
