Most time a lot since to be going on behind our backs because we are too strict, or we don’t have time to share some burning issues with our children.
When I talk to my daughter at times on the phone while in public, they seem to think I was talking to my girlfriend, the few curious ones will ask what friend was that? And will be amazed to learn that it was my daughter I was talking to.
We understand ourselves so well that she doesn’t, or rather we don’t keep anything from each other.
Be a friend.
Being your child’s friend is the most significant thing that could also boost your bonds. There should never be a dull moment with you around each other.
You don’t need the whole money in the world to be happy, because it comes free, you create it and leave it on your own terms.
Yes if you have the means go for outings to parks, ice cream joints go shopping or even take a trip just to bond, but if you don’t, use your own creativity.
I bond with my children each time I am home, we’ll tease each other and make reference to past events and those moments cannot be threaded for anything in the world.
