Golden Childhood!

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
March 2, 2016 11:57am CST
Many of us are unaware of the importance of our childhood and how it affects our life. I for one had a great childhood and enjoyed growing up with my family close. My cousins and I were together every weekend at my grandmothers house playing outside and enjoying summer days together. With my kids I try my best to keep them happy without spoiling them too much because I know the importance of having a good childhood and how far those memories can go. My kids are blessed with a father who loves them for life and I wil do anything for their happiness!

A happy childhood more often than not makes for a very happy adult.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX well, perhaps they can also volunteer places, or have chores and responsibilities.
