Give presence more than presents
The greatest gift you can give someone doesn’t cost money. It is totally free, yet many families neglect to give this to their children. Instead, they give them presents like all of the latest toys, gadgets, and electronics. But they are missing out on the greatest gift of all, the presence of their parents.
It takes time to have meaningful relationships with children. It does not happen because you live in the same house, or are in the same classroom. It happens when special time is set aside so children feel special. You cannot replace what children are missing in their homes, but you sure can help children to feel more special with your special presence and honoring their presence — making them feel special and that you are glad to see them and hear what they have to say.
Have a great day and a wonderful week-end. You are a difference maker.
