I thought about writing a post commemorating 9/11, but it just made me sad, and I don’t do sad. And really, every venue has thoroughly covered the topic this weekend, so I didn’t think anyone needed to read one more from me. So, instead, I’m writing about communicating with your kids. I’ve written about the importance of communicating with your kids many times over the years. It’s important to make the time to talk with your kids, starting when they’re babies. Talk to them, listen to them, and keep those lines open, ensuring them that they can come to you with any problem, at any time.
Earlier this week, I wrote about how my teenage son and I kept in touch via texting HERE. Today, my seven-year-old son, Clay, found a creative way to get my attention so he could ask me a question; a question of the utmost importance. It was so important, in fact, that he simply couldn’t go to sleep until I’d answered him.
