Email of the Day: The Importance Of Treasured Time With Your Children

Email of the Day: The Importance Of Treasured Time With Your Children
I'm married, with two small children, ages 1 and 4. Although I listened to you growing up, a friend recently recommended The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, and I am back to listening to you regularly.
 
I'm 35 years old and am a stay-at-home mom. Most of my friends have full-time jobs along with their spouses, and I've witnessed first-hand the difference in their family dynamics. Having the opportunity to stay home and raise my children has been one of the best gifts to my children and our family. I wish more mothers would realize the importance of this treasured time with their children.

I heard you once respond to a caller who "wanted to feel productive as a stay-at-home mom" by saying that she was the "closest thing to God" that her children have. That comment resonated so much with me that I've shared that call with other mothers. I also made sure my husband listened to it! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your wisdom and your encouragement to those of us who stay-at-home to raise our children.
