A Simple Question
You may remember last week Josh (9y) had a bit of a breakdown because he didn't feel I spent enough time with him. Since then I've started checking in with him throughout the day and asking, "Did I spend enough time with you so far today?"
We're staying with friends right now, who have 2 older kids. After lunch I checked in with Josh and our friends' daughter said, "You do that?! Mom why don't you do that?"
Again before bed I asked Josh if I'd spent enough time with him today. Our friends' teenage son looked over at us, shocked. "Whoa! You do that? That's awesome!"
So apparently this is important to more kids than just mine.
