It is my responsibility to ensure that my children are healthy, happy, and safe. However, I also take great pride in being able to provide my children with the best life that I can.
Although I rarely like to admit it, money can be an important tool to provide my children with the best of life. For this reason, I make it a point to give my fullest effort in the workplace.
Each day, I work hard to let my employer know that I am willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. In doing so, I am sure that I am setting the path for a promotion in the near future!
This makes me feel good about myself in a professional sense. It’s also a relief to know that small and steady efforts allow me to provide my child with still more in the future.
Of course, money isn’t the only factor in giving my children the best in life.
The most important part of raising my children is instilling strong family values.
We regularly take part in fun bonding activities like playing ball, tag, and hide and seek. I may not be a fan of these games myself, but they make my children smile. That matters most of all to me!
Today, I give myself a break. Our situation as a family may not be exactly where I would like it to be. However, I know that I am trying my best.
- Have I enrolled my children in extracurricular activities to increase their activity level?
- How do I respond when my children defy the rules of the house?
- Do I take time for myself to ensure that I am mentally and emotionally healthy?
