London: Actor Ben Affleck finds it difficult to balance between work and family life.

The 40-year-old credits wife Jennifer Garner with taking charge of raising their daughters Violet, six, and Seraphina, three, and six-month-old son Samuel, reports

"I am not very present in the rest of my life. My wife`s very patient. She does everything. If I have time, I try to spend time with the kids, even if just to be a physical presence...," quoted Affleck as saying.

"But my mind`s always going, `How are we going to light that shot tomorrow? What`s the master shot for that scene? Is there even going to be a master?` Just ruminating endlessly. Because for me - I wish it was discipline or being a great artist. But it`s just anxiety," he added.
