Older children need time too

It’s not just pre-school children who benefit from having a parent at home and available for at least part of the day. In this BBC online magazine article, the writer – a mother with with two school-age children and a three year old – says

…I’m quickly learning that the older kids get the more they need you.

My children… want me to take them to school and collect them afterwards. They want me to listen to them reading, help with their drawings, go on school trips and turn up at their plays.

In short they want my time and attention, something that the childcare expert, Penelope Leach, says will continue all the way through the teenage years.
