The most precious gift you can give someone is the gift of your time and attention . Because ,your loved ones spell love as T.I.M.E .
I often wish the pace of life to slow down a bit , but lately I came up with the conclusion that besides the busy and stressful life , every individual has to make an effort to stay connected and guard their relationships.
Children these days are the major victim ! Especially ,wherein both the parents are working . Life is busy , I agree! But despite all the busyness, try spending some quality time with your children , as children naturally equate time with love .
Spend quality time with your children – go to movies , shopping , plan a vacation , play in the beach , paint together , dance with them , sing songs , help them with their homeworks and lot more .
When you don’t have time to spend , try to integrate your children in your schedule – take your kid along with you to make grocery shopping , allow them to help you with the cooking process , let them help you to set the table before dinner . These are few ways by which you can spend time with your children , when you actually don’t have time !
Spending quality time with your children is extremely important for their development and happiness !!
Ah! So I don’t blame only the parents .
We youngsters and teenagers stay busy with our life , career , friends , work …etc . Many of us migrate to different places , away from our family to have a better career . We get busy with our life and get involved with our career that we hardly talk with our parents. Frequency of our visit to see our family also reduces gradually.
In this process, we forget about our family and we don’t even realise how much they miss us .
The main problem is that , we youngsters take our family for granted . But , family members , especially our parents do feel , when their children don’t spend quality time with them .
Remember , unlike children who show their loneliness , parents do not expose their feelings ! It is you, who have to understand their feelings and spend quality time with them .
Ask a simple question to yourself and think accordingly –
Will you be happy with your children if they do the same with you ????
Finally , I just want to say , feel the pain ,emptiness and your absence in their life by stepping into their shoes. Slow down and slip in some memorable time with your loved ones that will let them know that you love and care for them .
Time is finite , make efforts to have healthy relationships by spending some of your time . Because ,
If not now , then never !!
PS: The time spent with your loved ones doesn’t need to be elaborate or long , but it must be of “quality” .
