You should bear in mind that what is important of all is that, you are with them especially on special occasions. Being with them on the Church Day, for instance, is already a big deal to sustain that good relationship between you. Or else, if you fail to attend at such important occasions, time will come that you are already as if a stranger to them. Of course, you don’t want that to happen, do you?
Hence, it is high time to realize the importance of alloting time to your family. Your regular presence at some important occasions, has an effect to your kid’s emotional and psychological development. You should always remember: family first before others.
