How To Be a Present Parent

How To Be a Present Parent

We are our children's first teachers and advocates. 

So many times we wonder what else is there that we could be doing to support our own child's growth and development and the truth is being present is key. We have to take time to listen to them, observe them, and celebrate their growth. 

The following link is an address by Dr. Adam Fraser who wrote the book The Third Space. His research is on transitioning from work to home, and how to be able to, in a way, let the day go, so that you can turn up and be present for your family. 

I love this video. Not just because it is entertaining (he is a great speaker), but he really speaks from the heart and provides simple steps to support this transition to being a present parent, and also being present in the workplace. 

We all want time with our families, but it is our quality time that our children crave the most. I encourage you to take some time to view his video titled: Three simple steps to not take a bad day home.

Please take time to watch the video. It is a game changer.
