My one child who is still at home is almost 18 and will be off to college in the fall. Her "social schedule" prevents us from spending much time together on a daily basis! I still help her with her French homework about 3x a week for about an hour or two, and I sure spend a lot of time driving her places! (she has a license, but not a car of her own) I'd say, on average, I'm directly interacting with her for only about 1 to 2 hrs a day. But when my kids were little, I was a hands-on Mom! I worked, but only part-time. My time priority was always my kids. And I can say, being a full-time Mom was the hardest job I've ever done, but also the most rewarding. All three of my kids are healthy, happy and successful, so I must have done something right!
