In todays busy technologically driven world, time is the one commodity which seems in short supply – and yet it is the one thing that has not changed over the centuries – since the beginning of time there has been day and night , 24 hours in a day for each of us! The one thing our children crave from us is our time and attention. So just as we reserve time for work, which is important, as this is how we support our family, we need to reserve time for family-time each day. Building our sense of belonging through shared meals and play time together, ensuring, ideally that at least at the beginning and the end of the day our children know through our physical engaged presence, we are there for them. Sharing even fifteen minutes for bedtime stories and a hug goodnight if that is all that can be managed will make the difference in your child’s life….for life.
Your unconditional attention for a little time each day = QUALITY TIME.
