Over the past five years technology has expanded in unbelievable ways bringing with it so many positives, and more than a few challenges.

One of the delights of the internet is that it gives us, if we wish, the freedom to work from home and also to connect with others, friends and family that we can't see on a daily basis. Technology saves us time in so many ways and yet it also steals our time and our attention.

Time a valuable asset.

There is an old Chinese proverb that as a gardener I really appreciate “A gardener’s footsteps are the best fetiliser” in other words to promote maximum healthy growth in our plants they need our time and input.

I think this proverb also applies to our role as parents, to enable our children to grow well, healthily and joyfully they need our love, time and input.
