Spending Quality Time With Your Children

Posted on by nph

The week of the National Parent Helpline Park event my eyes were really opened up as I asked myself what am I really doing for my son? Let me tell you about how this day went for me and my son. It was a great sunny day, it was very hot out at the Park in Pomona and all the children were there with their parents having a good time. I watched parents laughing and enjoying the day as the family did fun activities together. I on the other hand was volunteering on one side of the park while my son helped on the other side of the park with a fun game booth. I do have to admit I was happy to see my son smile and enjoy himself outside around other people. My son does not like leaving the house and would prefer staying home playing video games. At the end of the day I realized the importance of bonding and how it is very important to spend quality time with your children. Spending time together is more important than taking your son to Magic Mountain or Disney Land. It does not matter how much money you spend on your children but, the amount of time you spend with your children is what’s important. When you spend time with your children you get to know your child and know how he or she is doing in school. At the end of the day when driving home my son thanked me for taking him to the park event as he said he had a lot of fun and got to interact with other children as well as know a little of what his dad does.
