What I found out is that so many people choose a career over their children.
Some justified it by saying, 'when I make this much I can do this for my children'. Yet when they made 'that much', they see something else they want.
The children never really spend time with their guardian. Now when their guardian is home they are always working, it is never enough money for them. Sure they buy the child what they want, but what the child wants is quality time with their parent.
They want to know that they are loved, not by clothes, money, or vehicles.
They want to experience Love by spending time with family.
Now when the 'no-good' crowd, or so called 'friends' show up, the child gets involved in things they should not.
All because they want some attention, the attention they are not getting at home.
The Pattern sometimes can be taken too far. You want something better for your children, but you neglect spending time with them.
Parents can end up burying their child, then thinking later 'where did I go wrong' and wishing they could change the time to replace the money with the one they just lost.
Think it out.
Where does The Pattern lead me too? Do I want to go there? or can I choose a different path?
