Age seems to be a definite factor in how we live our lives. It helps us define what we can or cannot do. And when it comes to your children, how much does age contribute to your activity? Is getting older hurting your children?
And not because they are getting older, but you are. My sons absolutely love games. For them, spending time together is playing games. Now that seems like an easy enough task for me to handle. But gaming is not my forte. I crash before I blink!

They don’t care about my crashing. They want me there cheering them on, laughing hysterically because I can’t play and just having fun with them.
Yet how I view it…I’m not good at it. There’s nothing I can do to make me a better player. So why waste their time and get them frustrated because of my inabilities to play games?
Do you hear the two different tones to what my sons verses what I see?
The want mommy’s presence. They honestly could care less about me playing. They want me. But because I’m not the gamer like I was as the Atari Space Invader’s queen, I don’t want to play.
Is getting older hurting your children?
You children desire you! And it doesn’t matter how great you are or how bad you are. They want YOU! However, we let our excuse of getting older become a roadblock of playing with our children.
Play is relationship building. It’s the way your children communicate with you. It strengthens your bond with your children. The problem is we are growing out of play.
