Do you have kids? Even if you don’t, take what I say and apply it to your family (Spouse, pet, etc.).
Last post I talked about not having time. If you made all the money in the world and lost your kids would it be worth it? Are you spending any time with them? Is this the face you see?
Do your kids know your name? Not necessarily your first name like mine (Sam), but do they know who you are? Are you a stranger? (I know I have lots of questions.)
Spending time- Quantity versus Quality
- Quality Time– Especially if you are limited on time, make the time count. Let them know you care about them and will protect them. Teach them something. At an early age read books to them. Fathers with girls- take the on dates even at an early age so they know the proper conduct expected. Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 Invest time in them. I am not saying be their buddy and be slack on discipline.
- Quantity Time– When you can spend the extra time with them. Before you know it they will be out of the house at school and later with their own family. If you feel like you are getting bored, change up the activity. Something new can be exciting to both you and them. It doesn’t have to cost money either. Go to a public park and take a walk, have a picnic or play on the playground. Above all else… Have Fun!
