“Love is not just something you say, it is something you do! My grandfather passed on an old saying to me that goes, “You can fake like you care but you can’t fake being there.”
To send messages of love to your children, you must show up. Love is not a spectator sport. Most kids would probably not articulate it, but almost every kid spells “love” T-I-M-E.
There is a fallacy loose in the world. Parents try to rationalize a lack of time for their children by saying, “We give quality time to our kids.” Baloney! It is impossible to turn on quality time.
We adults can’t turn on quality time with each other and it is even more impossible to do with our children.
There is TIME, period.”
