10 Secrets To Know You?re A Good Working Parent To Your Kids!

How are parents to know they are doing the right thing for their children when they are working parents? Many parents feel guilty for the amount of time they are spending at work versus the amount of time they spend with their children. If you are questioning yourself, trust that you do need to take a closer look at what you are doing.

We all want to feel and know we are loved. Children are no exception. I believe that when we parents let our children know they are safe, secure, valued and loved, then they have the most precious thing we can give them.

As a working parent, here are ten ways to help you to know whether you are spending enough time with your children. If you don't recognize many of these or don't know what I'm talking about, you're in trouble!

1. You work to feed your family, not your ego.

2. Your own self-development has led you to be willing to devote your time to the development of your children.

3. You know that lots of money will never replace lots of love.

4. Lots of "stuff" doesn't ever replace lots of attention.

5. Lots of classes by the best teachers will not replace what you teach by your own design and actions.

6. Knowing and teaching your personal ethics and values to your children takes priority over teachers' or caretakers' ideas of the same.

7. The most valuable title you hold is that of "Mom" or "Dad."

8. Keeping and creating family traditions has renewed importance and appreciation.

9. Your child's laughter is the most precious music to your ears.

10. "Time out" is you taking some extra time to spend with your kids.
