A Good Parent is…



A good parent…

Is Available

You can’t be a good parent and not be there.

I’m sorry for those of you that are on the road, but this parenting thing is hard. You can’t do it if you aren’t there.

But worse than being away from the kids is being there and not being there. TV, cell phones, Facebook and video games are just a few of the distractions from that all important task of being a good parent.

So what does this being there mean?

Your kids need your attention.

So talk to them, touch them, hug them, look into their eyes, read to them, sing with them, play with them and just be yourself with them.

In the end your kids will remember the time you spent with them and not anything else.

Make memories with your kids by being present with them.
