An older dad with grown-up kids gave me some advice about parenting that I thought a lot about yesterday. It was about quantity over quality. His advice was to just spend time with your kids. It doesn’t always have to be a special moment. Sometimes the best moments and memories are just driving to school together, walking the dog, hanging out after dinner, or reading a book.
Don’t manufacture or wait for the perfect moment. Just turn up. And turn up often.
