And then you open your eyes and they are teenagers, and you want to take them in your arms and hug them and kiss them and read them a book but you can’t, game over! Before they fall asleep, where did that time go?
The best time of the day, when you can read them a book and watch them nicely fall asleep, is gone!
Gone and never coming back!
That very special time, just before they fall asleep when you read them something from their favorite book, something happy and positive you reassure them of your love and you make them feel loved and secure!
Preferably no dragons and bad spirits, we want them to have an undisturbed sleep, so they can get a nice rest!
But if you are in that position, when they are still young, don’t overlook the benefits of spending the time just before they sleep to bond with them!
They don’t like to sleep, but they like to talk, and they ask all kinds of questions, and here is what you as a parent want, to get to know what is in the heart of the child so you can help them along, with their fears and insecurities!
Maybe Not at that moment, but you are aware of what troubles them and at a more appropriate time you will be able to give them the best help because you are the only one that can, you love them more than anyone in the world!
Our world is hostile, our young ones need all the love, and protection we can give them!
Do your best while you still can, #Read them a book! Before they fall asleep!
And remember, It’s not the book, it’s the special #gift you as a parent will enjoy, the company of your child in the perfect surroundings! Priceless!
Before they fall asleep, make it happen!
