Kids Need Your Undivided Attention!

Yes, life is busy.  Most of us feel we need to multitask just to survive.  I watched a father the other day spend some “quality time” at a park with a young son about eight years old. Sadly, the dad was not engaging his son.  He was physically there but he was many miles away emotionally and mentally.  The entire time they were together for “quality time” he was talking on his phone, texting, or playing on his phone.  His young son was off playing by himself without even a friend to help occupy his time.

 

Your kids need you!  They need you to ask questions and to listen, play on the floor, hike a hill, or talk about life issues that are important to the child.  Do your child a favor.  When you set aside time for your child turn off your distractions.  Do what is important to your child, not what is important to you.
