When life gets hectic, it’s tempting to give our kids the leftovers of our time. But our priorities should really be the other way around.
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Hey, I’m right there with you. We’re all busy people who carry the weight of a thousand different responsibilities. But your family needs your time more than they need anything else.
And trust me on this: You’ll never hear someone at the end of their life say, “I wish I had spent more time in the office.” Or, “If only my child had taken more clarinet lessons.”
But you will hear parents say, “I wish I’d spent more time with my family.”
So don’t live with regrets. Throw off the need to be busy 24-7, and grab hold of what truly matters most. Give your son and daughter your time.
