Recently I watched a video from Office Depot® OfficeMax® titled Ever Wonder How Your Kids View You? These Parents Found Out.
The premise of the segment is “As a parent, you always wonder whether you’re doing your job right.”
I have to admit, that I have had those same thoughts about my own kids. My hopes are that they know my husband and I are trying to provide them with the best tools to be successful in life and lots of love along the way.
Whether through life lessons, sitting alongside them as they work through a problem, or simply being there when they have tough questions, parents are role models and the main providers of support for our children.
Especially now with the back to school season gearing up again, Mom and Dad will be managing the new schedules, being the tutor for those difficult homework nights, and also making sure that their kids are well rested and ready to be educated.
As I watched the Office Depot® OfficeMax® video “Ever Wonder How Your Kids View You? These Parents Found Out” I laughed at what the kids said, as well as got a little emotional (just like the parents) because I too worry about the future and just hope that I am getting it right (or close to it).
We are hard on ourselves, but obviously it is paying off.
I decided to have my own kids share their thoughts about my husband and me, and guess what? It was all positive and I am glad that they are having fun. Some of the awesome and sweet things my kiddos shared are:
-My Mom takes us to many fun places (My oldest).
-They are nice (My daughter).
-They are silly (My 4 year old).
-Momma makes YUMMY Food (My 4 year old).
-My Dad is always there when I do a sport (My oldest).
-They Tickle you (My daughter).
-I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them (My oldest).
Office Depot® OfficeMax® know that parents want what is best for their kids, and this is why they offer all of the back to school supplies your children need to be successful in the classroom and beyond.
Every little thing you do for your children is noticed and appreciated, so help them grow up to be just like the parents they admire and #GearUpForSchool.
Are you prepared for back to school? What did you like most about this video? Be sure to share this with family and friends!
All I can say is, I am enjoying the time while I can because they do grow up way too fast.
