The most valuable gift that any parent can give to their children is not things but quality time. Time well spent with them will be remembered above any material possessions that we can ever give them. Sometimes the negative behaviors that we see exhibited in children is simply a cry for attention and affection. Having daily down time and face to face interaction with them will provide a place to share what is on their mind with an opportunity to problem solve. Home should always be the first and the safest place for them to talk without judgment and criticism.And whether the conversation is good or bad, happy or sad… as parents we just need to listen up because our children are the future. They are a heritage and a blessing from up above!

~Take Time~

Take time to hear your children laugh,
Take time to watch them play.
Take time to love and nurture them,
And help them on their way.
Take time to lead by example,
For your life they one day will sample.
Take time to plant the seed of faith,
For it will keep them on the path that is straight.
Take time to lend a listening ear,
For it will assure them of your love and care.
