Foreword / by Wes Moore -- Presence of mind -- Presence of heart -- Presence of faith -- Presence of courage -- Presence of resources -- Presence of connectedness -- Presence of values.
The mother of memoirist Wes Moore outlines seven specific strategies--including faith, courage, and financial freedom--for ensuring that children consistently feel a positive caregiver's presence regardless of distance.
"What does 'presence' mean to a parent? It's being available when you are needed the most. It's showing support through trial and triumph, even when separated by miles. It's equipping your kids with the tools they'll need to become successful adults. It's not possible to be physically nearby for every decision or every important moment of a child's life. Presence is about finding ways to express your love, your support, and your expectations using the time and resources available. The Power of Presence shows what it takes to raise great kids and make the time that you're together count. Herself a single mother three times--twice by choice and once by tragedy--Joy Thomas Moore knows what it's like to make hard decisions: sometimes sacrificing time with her family in order to pay the bills, sometimes putting her career on hold for the good of her kids. In this compassionate, inspiring guide, Joy, mother of bestselling author Wes Moore, shares hard-earned wisdom about being the best parent you can be and learning how to get the help that every family needs. There are seven pillars--mind, heart, faith, courage, resources, connectedness, and values--that parents can use to be a positive influence and set a strong example. These pillars establish rules, convey values, open lines of communication, and give parents creative ways to form meaningful bonds with each child. Parenting is a juggling act; it's tough to maintain presence even when there are two parents in the household. And for a parent or caregiver going it alone, the task can sometimes feel impossible. These seven pillars can help set priorities for making the time with your kids count. The Power of Presence produces what all parents want: children who are happy, healthy, and fulfilled--and secure in their paths toward becoming self-sufficient adults."--Jacket.
