Do things together

To the Editor:

The photo titled “Quiet time” in the Jan. 3 paper, unfortunately, illustrates societies misconception of spending time together, as is written under the photo. What is gained in the relationship when everyone is doing something themselves?

Together-time is an interaction between two people that has the potential to enhance their relationship by building trust and communication, and helps prevent a whole slew of issues when those two boys enter into their teen years.

Please, set down the phone or electronic device and do something with your child that shows them they are important enough for your attention.
