Put Down Your Phone

"Put down your phone." Such a timely message.

In today's world, it is difficult for most people, especially for parents to find the right balance for family, work, and self.   We are inundated with phone calls, texts, emails and busy schedules. 

Being present in the moment becomes near impossible while multi-tasking especially during a routine activity.

This CNN article below highlights the importance of putting our phones down and being present with our children.

As parents we can spare a few moments from our phone and work to hug our kids, look them in the eyes and say, "Hello, I have missed you, I love you."  Especially when picking them up from daycare or school.
