One of my friends on LinkedIn asked, “If you could give advice to a new family, what would it be?”
Here was my response.
“Minimize distractions and stay vested in your children. My oldest is only 2.5, but it has flown by, and I can’t believe it.
They soak in everything, so love your wife (or husband), do the best you can, and don’t be afraid to mess up.
Talk to your children… you don’t have to baby them. They’re little humans that will one day be their own person. They are soaking it in, so teach them things, even when they’re little, and I promise it will make a huge difference in their development.
Most of all, love them, cherish them and get all the snuggles you can.”
