It can only be learned by looking into the heart of a child and seeing what they need most from their mother.
Time. Pure, uninterrupted, focused time.
Your child needs you to stop what you’re doing. Put down the phone. Turn off the computer. Go outside and play with them. Turn off the television and go cuddle with them in their beds. Find out what’s on their minds and hearts. Pray with them.
They need to see that they are important to you.
It’s absolutely vital that your children know they are more important to you than your blog, Facebook or Twitter accounts. This seems like common sense, but how many times have your children tried to get your attention while you’re surfing the internet and you tell them to hold on a minute?
I am so guilty.
The years are passing quickly. We can not afford to miss a single moment of our child’s life.
Homeschool moms are busy ladies. We are homemakers, teachers, spiritual leaders, wives, mothers, friends, nurses, employees, financial advisers, cooks and the list goes on and on. However, we must never find ourselves too busy that we neglect the single thing our sons and daughters need most: unstructured times and our undivided attention.
Yes, we provide for their needs and are sacrificing a great amount to homeschool our children, but are we really giving them what they need?
