You can be a Rock Star Mom!
Being a mom isn’t easy in today’s times. Being a parent in general! But being a rock star mom, now that requires work.
We live in such a fast paced world. One where technology knocks on every door and peeps in at every window, asking for our attention. Begging for out attention. And much more importantly, our children’s attention.
Now please don’t get me wrong. I am just as guilty as the next mom or dad for using the TV or my tablet, more recently, as an electronic baby sitter. Sometimes I am very tempted, after a long day at the office, to run a bath of wine, and slap them electronics into the kids hands until bed time, or even until the next day! however, did you know that what our kids want and need most, is us?
That it is our time, not our money, that they value most? They yearn for us to talk to them. about our day, about the environment, about the economy. Anything and everything as their little sponge-like minds eat up everything we say. That they would love to play a game of Uno above a game of Candy Crush? Share a laugh, and enjoy victory?
