- Money Doesn’t Replace Time
If we interviewed some of the world’s wealthiest famous kids, and asked them the one thing they wish they had more of growing up I can assure you the answer would be time with their parents. Each father has different circumstances, but all too often the idea that “if I just provide for them financially I am being enough for them” – wrong. Sure, having your consistent financial support to help with your child’s needs and wants is a blessing. The fact that you go to work every day to make sure you can provide for your family should definitely be appreciated. Where some father’s go wrong is thinking “as long as I make sure they have what they need, and give them what they want I’m doing enough”. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Again, circumstances are different for everyone. The aim here is to highlight that spoiling your kids with material things, or putting yourself on child support and thinking it will fill the void of your absence is wrong, because money doesn’t replace time. Do the best you can under your personal circumstances to spend quality time with your child. Let them know they are loved no matter what. This will mean more to them than anything you could ever purchase. It will give them something that a price tag can’t be applied to.
