Children need you to be there. I’ve heard people say quality over quantity, and while it’s important to spend quality time with your children, they also need to spend a lot of time with their parents – especially babies and preschoolers. Even school aged and teenagers have a need for their parents to be attentive, and to be there for them. We all have busy lives, but make sure your children have a high priority for your time. It isn’t long before they are grown and gone. You can never get back time that was missed, so enjoy every moment you have to spend with your precious (and often frustrating) children.
