Time With Children
There are so many moms out there that are always beating themselves up with, "am I a great mom" "what can I be doing better", or "what else can I do?" running through their heads constantly. I believe if you truly are doing your best, I mean 100%, then yes, you are a great mother. If you are always doing whatever you think is best for your child. Then, you have made it into the good mom's club (if there even is one). However, there is one big secret to happy families.
The secret to happy families is TIME. That's right. That is all anyone wants from you. It is the most precious commodity (as you have read in my post Timeless). All children want is time with you. It does not matter if you are taking them to Disney World or if you are putting a puzzle together on the floor with them. To a child, you are their whole world. They do not go anywhere without you or without your say so. They do not have other real friends and people to lean on except for you. Many parents forget that. It is easy to forget, that we really are the center of our children's lives and they really should be the center of yours.
Always be sure to take the extra minute and color with your child. Or that day off you have bring your child with you as you run errands. Remember they just want your time and when they have it everything is much easier. They behave better, they are happier and all because they have your time and attention.
You will be surprised just how important TIME really is when it comes to children. It goes by incredibly quickly so try to catch as much of it as you can.
I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!
