Recently a cab driver asked me a question.
“When I go home after my shift, what’s the one thing I should do with my kids?”
“The most important thing you can do for your kids is to love them. And show that you love them by giving them your best self, and your best time.”
Then I gave him my advice for what to do when he knocked-off work that afternoon:
“When you walk in that door, put on your happiest dad face. Then call out to the children, lay down on the floor, and let them jump all over you for at least ten minutes. It will change your day, and it will change their day.”
“To a child, love is spelled T – I – M – E.”
It is a simple lesson.
This is a reminder.
