Daddy-date meter January 18, 2012

Posted by clintcarter in Family.

I think it’s amazing how all of my kids have a built-in Daddy-date meter.

I used to worry about trying to schedule a time with each of them regularly – which was a little overwhelming since there are four of them.  I would regularly forget or have too many other things crowding my schedule to make it happen.

About 6 months ago I decided to scratch all of my attempts at organizing this.  Instead I just let my kids know that anytime they wanted to spend time by themselves with me,  I would love to do that.  I encouraged them to ask me whenever they were ready for a date with Dad.

It has worked out beautifully.  I no longer worry about equality of time or frequency.  They let me know when they need time and then we hang out.

Daddy-date Meter? Sounds like it should be marketed!
