I have 24 hours every day to spend the way I choose. With the hours I have been given, I choose to be present with my kids as much as I am physically able. A wise person shared this truth with me a long time ago: I can be present with my kids or someone else can.
The truth is that, while we value being the strongest influence in our kids' lives, that can’t last forever. Eventually, they start to value what others think and spend more time outside our home than they do with us as parents.
