About Lance Waite
"There are not enough relationship books between kids and their parents. I believe there is an important element that should be addressed about relationships between parents and their children".
Describing how children and parents can share a particular experience. One of the most basic elements of relating to our children requires us, as parents, to have conversations with our kids, about subject matter that is important to them.
Lance Waite's first children's book, " A Day with My Dad" is a story about a father and daughter taking time to go hiking in the hills near their home.
We may remember as kids what our parents did for us, but most of us don’t know and didn’t realize just how much our parents cared about us as children, until we became parents ourselves. I want to remind -and maybe motivate- parents to set aside time for their kids, do things together, talk to them and make sure to have a relationship with their kids, not just at breakfast or in a car while running errands.
They will remember it later - just like you remember yours- and those times and memories will carry throughout their life and somewhat will form who they will be.
Your relationship with your kids is one of the most important things and one of the easiest .Simply take time to talk to your kids, spend time with your kids do things together.
