Am I Here? – Children

Children playing

Parents lives are busier than they ever were before and juggling a career and family is not easy. But being present to your children is vitally important.
“Being present” simply means that you are engaging with your children and actively listening to what they are saying without distraction. It’s not an easy task; you may be thinking about your day, what your day is going to be like tomorrow, or any number of other things.
But there are ways to be more present with your children. Try to take a bit of time to relax and shed the cares of the day (no, not watching television). Meditate for 5-10 minutes, calming your body and your mind. Then engage with your children when you are refreshed. It will make a world of a difference.
