If you cannot spend all that time with your kids, give them quality time. That is, even if all you had was 5 minutes in a day, give them your whole attention in that 5 minutes, be fully present for them.
Being fully present is what I have been learning as a play therapist for my son, Nathan, who has autism. It has also helped me deepen my relationships with all my kids. I give my typical child, Ian, very little time, compared to my special-needs twins. However, I’m confident in the strong relationship he wants to build with me, simply because of the quality of the time I give him.
In the photo: I was in the playroom, doing play therapy for my Nathan, when Ian, popped in and wanted to play with us. I welcomed him to the game. He was so silly and engaging that Nathan kept asking him to be a monkey.
My ambitions are simple. I just want an extended family vacation at the beach where my kids can soak up the vitamin D from the sun, get grounding from the sand and get a detox bath at the sea. We can also eat healthy and get fresh produce from the local farms. There are so much health benefits from being at the beach compared to a chlorinated pool.

I was cooking breakfast while listening to Online Business tips, when my Daughter asked me what I was listening too. We had such a good conversation I wanted to capture it on video.
If I were a child and Toys ‘r Us was close to us, this is probably how I would have been.
If my 7-year-old were my father, we would have a good financial standing because of how practical he is.
My 7-year-old just made an amazing investment!
