When to Say No to Your Kids
What an awesome responsibility, to become the parent of a child. When you have taken care of feeding them and protecting them from harm, you still want to give them all the love they need and all the advantages you can offer.
You teach them to walk, do homework with them, take them to soccer practice, pay for their SAT prep classes. You monitor their television time, show them how to hold a crayon, cook a dinner, and ride a bike.
But the most important thing you show them is how to be happily, respectfully, affectionately married. So, if baby massage class, violin lessons, rugby practice, and PTA keep you from spending needed time with your spouse, just say no.
It is truly the best advantage you can offer your kids.
