Family time is very important and should be heavily guarded. It should be protected as something of high value. Though the characters in this book are fictional, they are facing some real life issues. Most families with children understand the difficult challenges that can occur when juggling often conflicting school, home, work, family and social obligations or desires.
In many two parent families, where both parents work outside of the home, the children go to some type of after school care. For single parents, the responsibilities of solitary parenthood can make it easier to lose focus and miss important moments in their child’s life.
In some cases, children come home to an empty house and are without adult supervision for countless hours. While this may be the most economical option, it may not be the safest alternative or the best choice for the young child.
These children are identified as latchkey kids. They become their own caregivers and often make their own rules. In the classroom, they are easily defined as rebellious, argumentative and those who challenge adult authority. If left unchecked, this rebellious cycle of behaviors can continue developing into adolescence and progressing into adulthood. In reality, most children don’t want to grow up so fast. They just want to be children and not have to deal with the hassles of making grown-up decisions. Children are not little adults and should not be expected to think like an adult. They should be allowed to be children.
This book is just a reminder of the importance of quality family time. Protect your family time and remember that your family is your first job and mission.
