    Right on my friend!! I couldn’t agree more! Key point; our children do indeed need us just as much, if not more, when they are in Middle School and High School than when they are in Elementary School. Too often we think they are old enough to take care of themselves. Though this is true, they still need our presence, hugs, and availability to listen to their hearts.

    God bless you, and God bless your Ministry!

      It seems the world wants our kids to believe they are independent adults at the age of 7 these days, but nothing is more valuable than setting up healthy parameters and quality time to show our love. Thanks for sharing! God Bless your ministry too!

    Great words of wisdom!

  3. My husband and I recently decided to have NO technology on while the two year old (our oldest) is awake. I wake up before her to do social media and blogging, and I work my little fingers off when she takes a nap, but as soon as she is up, our laptops are closed and our phones are put on the counter. UM, this has CHANGED how our family spends time together and it makes the time together so much sweeter, so much less distracted and so much better! I highly recommend this to EVERYONE!

      Hi Suzanne! This a FANTASTIC idea and one I am sure is hard, but the payoff will be great! Distractions take our focus away from what is important. I applaud your dedication to quality time! Thanks for sharing!
