“I always give the kids direct access to me when I am at work, even if I have people with me. In fact I have a special phone line on my desk that only the family use. Of course, sometimes when they call it’s not convenient for me to talk to them and I let them know that unless it is urgent we need to talk later, but they always know that they have direct access to me.” – Tim Willoughby, stockbroker and triple Olympian.
- Making yourself available to your children lets them know that they are a priority.
- When children can approach you in their own time they may just be more willing to share their problems with you.
