Time with Children

My dad and I hunted and fished together. How could I get angry at this man who took the time to be with me?
Dr. James Dobson

My parents always made me feel secure. I can probably count the times on my hand that I came home to an empty house. If at three o’clock when I got home from school my mother wasn’t home, my dad invariably was.

When Dad came home at the end of the day, he’d get a little something to eat and then he’d go out and play tennis with us for about an hour and a half. If we wanted to play tennis at ten o’clock at night, my dad was more than willing to do it. Never once did he say, “No, I had a long day at work. I’m tired.”
Michael Chang

The walks I took with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.

Camping, hiking and outdoor activity provide prime opportunities to bond with our families. Sitting around a campfire, walking along a mountain trail or waiting by a lakeside for the fish to bite offer never-to-be-duplicated moments to talk on a deeper level with our children. Just being with them communicates they are loved.
Gary Smalley and John Trent
