Do you love your children? It seems a silly question as everybody loves. But are you able to show your children the love and care for them. Our children require our time and attention to move through the world, with a sense there is a plethora of love and security waiting for them at the home. Focusing on the child’s mind, making eye contact with him and truly listening to what is going on with him; give him a wonderful and amazing sense of accomplishment. Somebody is there to listen.
It is a present for the children and this makes the bond between children and the parents for the coming years. We today are showered with many interruptions and that eat away all of our time. This shower of interruptions leaves a little life for our loved ones who matter most in our lives.
The parents can notice that how much our lives have changed because of the electronic media. It is becoming difficult to be a parent whose prime focus is his children. Likewise the children also have equal distractions. Our attention and time is sidetracked every moment.
Now is the right time for making the choice. Is there anything you do is of comparable importance than being a parent. The bond between you and your children is the future of the human being, which is in this world because of you. This bond is not properly fulfilled by providing him every thing which he may have asked for. This is something which sometimes parents do to hide their own guilt. As parents, we lead a busy life. Our own children go to the bottom of the lengthy list of works – to – do.
Our children require our time, direction and attention. They truly need our guidance. The critical choices of their life have to be made by the parents. Young children do not have that decisive power about their lives. They often depict a media driven culture which they have opted from watching television.
The best gift which you can give to your children is neither the best toy, nor the money; rather it is your time and attention. The results and affects of these rewards are not instantaneous. The rewards come slowly, but they are worth it. A day will come when our children will become parent of their own youngsters. You might be lucky to see those days. But these will be worth enough only if you have spent the best time with your own children in their childhood.
