Dad

Dad, time is the most precious gift you can give your kids. You aren’t guaranteed a tomorrow, so make sure that today counts.

Set aside time each day—whether it is five minutes or thirty minutes—to spend one-on-one with each of your children. Give your time together a silly name, like “Pick on Daddy Time.” Turn off your phone, your computer, and any other distraction.

Then protect that time at all costs. Don’t let anything take you or your child away.

Let your child decide how you will spend your time together. Perhaps you’ll wrestle with your son. Maybe your teenager daughter will share her new favorite song with you. Regardless, if you let your child take the lead, you will build lasting memories.

One last note: Be sure to protect this time each day as if you will never have another day with your child. Someday, you might be right.
