Spend Time Rather Than Money on Your Children

Young people committing suicide is quite popular nowadays and news of these keep popping up on TV, radio and newspapers. One of the main causes of these tragedies is the lack of communication between parents and their young children and they spend money rather than time. I totally agree with this and parents should spend time instead of money.

Although young children committing suicide is only the rarest and the most extreme case, the lack of communication between parents and their young children causes many other problems. But what causes this problem? The answer is simple, parents are spending less time with their children. In this well-developed world, young children are facing more and more pressures and problems than children in the past few decades. Relationships with friends, schools and money sometimes cause problems which are too complicated to those inexperienced young children. They need help and guidance to solve their problems, and they need love and care to ease their tension and sorrow.

But we understand that the parents should not be burdened with all the blame. They have their own difficulties. They have to work hard for money to support their families. To compensate for the shrinking length of time between them and their children, they try their best to fulfill the materialistic needs of their children. They hope that money can improve their situation, even to a very small extent. This results in the lack of communication between them. This phenomenon is very unhealthy. Parents need to spend time with their young children rather than spend money on them.

Some may argue that young children nowadays have to be left alone, so they will learn how to tackle their problems by themselves and become more independent. This is a point where parents have to balance. First, parents have to balance their time spent in office with their time spent with their children. Second, parents have to balance the amount of help they should give their children alone to tackle problems.

Spending time with young children is very vital and parents should try their best to do so to improve parent-child relationship. They will then understand more on how their children feel, what they do, what they need and what they like. The children can have more love and care from their parents. With this, they can handle everything more easily. Parents should give more attention to their children and seek advice from others in order to get the balance. Money is not everything.

In spite of the fast-moving world nowadays, I am sure young children still wish spending time with their parents rather than spending time with toys or electronic games.If the parents spend more time with their young children, I think there will be less social problems and more capable and loving children.Their relationships can also be improved.

I grew up in a house where money was pretty tight but we did take some great vacations. These are some of the best memories from my childhood. I don't really remember the "things" that where bought for me but spending 2 weeks on Cape Cod every summer is something I wouldn't trade for anything.
