“Life becomes about opportunity cost”, with Dr. Ely Weinschneider and Alison Bernstein

We all have kids for a reason. We need to enjoy them, not treat them as a job. They have so much to offer. The truth about children is that they are young for such a short period of time and you want to really capture all you can. There are so many to do lists, both for you and them. You just simply never know when they are going to feel like sharing something with you -or simply need you. That is the human element you cannot plan for or schedule into your day. I don’t know what the right amount of time is to spend with children — I guess it depends on how many you have…and it is not a quality vs. quantity conversation. It is also about being present — both for you and them. If you are physically there but talking to your friends, on a conference call, or checking your phone…. it doesn’t accomplish what you intend. Life becomes about opportunity cost … staying an hour later in the office is worth a lot more and is more of a deliberation when thinking of that hour lost with your children.
