“Quality time alone does not work. The kids soon discovered when I had the ‘quality time’ look in my eye, when I only had an hour to spend and I was going to come in and ask them about their schoolwork and want to play basketball. Naturally they would disappear. It’s only quantity time that allows for quality moments.” – Tim Costello, minister and CEO of World Vision Australia
- You can’t force quality time with your children
- Spending everyday moments together has just as much value as the special moments
- Often the quality moments happen right in the middle of the most mundane tasks. They are simply the result of being in the right place at the right time.
