and I’m constantly worried that life’s busy schedule makes me miss all the beautiful moments I could have had with them during their childhood. Moments that will not only enrich my life but also shape theirs for the better.
Kids will always crave the attention of their parents but taking that for granted is a dangerous endeavour. They will eventually stop trying if you don’t acknowledge their need for attention and look elsewhere.
- Give yourself time to just sit down and reflect on what has happened during the week and see how you can find more time for your kids while keeping everything else in check.
- Because life gets THAT busy make yourself a plan and even if it’s only 30 minutes a day of quality time with your kids they will love you for it.
- Talk to your kids and let them know why you can’t spend all day with them although if it was up to you, you would! Don’t you say no when they ask for attention, explain why not, give them an alternative and comfort them.
