The most significant gift you can give your children is your presence - a commitment to being fully present with them without your own agenda.
As conscious parents or guardians, we want to be fully present. However, life does get in the way some (or more than some) of the time. It creeps up on us with work commitments, running errands, sticking to an agenda or curriculum, or grabbing that little time to ourselves when the kids are playing independently.
Little reminders to take these days to be with our kids, no matter their age, are super important.
"Your presence is the most precious gift you can give to another human being."
