The Quality is in the Quantity

In the end reality always wins. And the reality is that time is absolutely indispensable to high-quality parenting. Time is the framework upon which other aspects of family are built. It takes time to consistently discipline. It takes time to catch teens in the mood to talk with us. It takes time to teach, hug, pray, cry, be frustrated with each other and then make up. No matter how high the quality, it alone cannot form the bonds of a relationship. That takes quantity. It always will.

“Good discipline, great teens” , Dr. Ray Guarendi

Während einer Konferenz im Rahmen eines Opendays im Kindergarten frage ich eine Psychologin welches die wichtigen Elemente sind, um mit seinen Kindern ein gute Beziehung zu haben – sie antwortet mir:

  1. Immer für sie da zu sein (nicht notwendigerweise physisch)
  2. Immer die Zuneigung und Liebe für den Ehepartner bekunden
  3. Zeigen dass man die Kinder liebt
