i think this quote is very right and very true.. i believe children needs more time from their parents, they can feel that they are very loved by their parents if the parents can spend more time with them.. but failure of spending time with them means a lot to them, it means they don't care and love you, do you agree?? so better find a little time to spend with them, let them feel that they are very important to you.. children are the greatest thing or the greatest gift a couple can receive..

Yes I would definitely have to agree with this one too. Actually "time" here does not just mean spending it with them physically but even alotting a couple of minutes of your time to call your child when you are at work or away can also be a sign of love and is still considered "spending your time with them". A lot of parents say that it would be very impossible to be with their children all the time but they have to think of other ways to make up for them. Even in their absence, they can still make their children feel that they love them. A simple text, call or spending time making notes/messages for your child will give him/her assurance that he/she is not taken for granted. A lot of children grow up being destructive just because of the lack of love or the failure to feel it from their parents. Yes I also agree that children are indeed the best gift a couple can get! That is why they should be loved and not taken forgranted.

I am not yet married and have no kids either. Maybe I am just the idealistic type of a person so I see things black or white and I love analyzing situations so much.. To be honest, I actually am afraid of having a family of my own yet because I am not sure if I would be a good wife and mother. I want to be the best that I can be so I plan things carefully and I am not in a hurry.

a few months from now, I would be a granny. And as I look back the years how I spent my time with my children, I have no regrets resigning from my job and putting up a small business in the first floor of my house so i could watch and take care my kids then. I agree that love and attention for a child is measured by the quality of time you spend with them. Seeing them grow up is a wonderful feeling. For them, your attention and love is their sense of security. i am quite excited for the arrival of my grandchild come January. I would gladly share the best times of my life with her/him. Many say, it is awesome to be a grandparent.. I'd love to pamper them with my tender loving care....
