We know how busy are our parents in the 21st Century, but we also want to make sure that our students get the attention and love of their parents and family. Being a parent is more than paying bills and taking caring of the materialistic needs. Parents need to communicate with the children to teach them how to live and behave, to monitor their growth and helping them identify their skills and talents. Parents are the best teachers in a child’s life. Without their guidance and support, a child is always confused between the right and the wrong.
Spending individual time with each child helps you better understand who your child is. When kids get regular time and attention from parents, they feel important. When you know what your child is thinking and dreaming about, you can help your child manage feelings and meet goals. In our fast-paced society, we often forget that relationships take care and time. Spending time with your children shouldn’t be seen as “doing time”—it shouldn’t feel like a prison sentence.
Anyone can have a child and call themselves “a parent”.
A real parent is someone who puts that child above their own selfish needs and wants.
