Be present at all times. Whatever is happening, it is important to be present for it. Others, especially children, can tell when you are not “all there.” You are cheating yourself out of moments that matter, moments that you can never get back, when you decide to split your focus. Multitasking has become an “in” thing – everyone is supposed to do it at all times. Be careful though. Some multitasking works, and some does not. Make sure that whatever you are doing, you are able to be present with it.
