Your Gaze Is The Most Important Gift You Will Ever Give Your Kids

The one thing your child wants from you, more than anything, is to be seen. When your kids are little, they aren’t shy to ask for it, “Mom, look at me!” or “Dad watch me,” yet as they grow, they stop asking and find ways to get your attention. The trouble is, they’ll take it any way they can get it. Your job is to anticipate this human need and to proactively gaze their way–really see them. Your gaze means more to your kids than any treat, toy, or activity. Don’t let them get to the point where they have to act out, put themselves at risk, or bully others to get it. See your kids and let them know that what you see is spectacular!
