I truly believe one of the most important aspects of a child’s development is based on how happy their are especially prior to their seventh birthday.
Later in life, adults who are more pleased with their lives have all agreed they had a happy childhood. When parent bring a child into the world, their first and foremost responsibility is the love and caring of their children.
Then life gets in the way.
Yet, it is more vital parents put aside their own needs for the well being of their children. It is more than providing food , clothing and shelter, it includes taking time to play, laugh, sing and listen to their children’s concerns.
It might take a few extra minutes out of your day, but it will create a life long impression on your children.
How do you want to be remembered by your children and grandchildren? Do you want them to always think of you fondly and remember all the times you were there for them and spent quality time with time? Or do you intend they go through life truly not knowing anything about you or feeling a connection with you in their hearts?
It is your choice.
