You pour everything you’ve got—your time, emotions, energy—into raising your kids, but you aren’t seeing any return on your investment. As your kids move into the teen years, you may even begin to see a “dip” in your parenting portfolio. But don’t lose heart. Remember that parenting is a long-term investment. So don’t look at the day to day returns which will fluctuate, but take a long term approach. You may not see the returns for many years, but if you consistently invest in your kids and parent them the right way, the rewards are much more likely to be there in the future. Listen to my new podcast on investing time in your kids.
