Read that again before you scream at the computer screen.
When I say support I mean do you come to their games (if you can) and participate in all of their functions (if you can)?
I understand we are all working parent’s BUT your child needs to see that you support his or her hard effort at school and sports. It would not hurt you to take a early off or change a shift so you can see your child’s game would it?
I used to be a workaholic (still Am) however I have slowed down and have started to enjoy sports and watching my children play, so what if it may take an extra 30 days to pay that credit card bill, my child was able to look into the stands and see me. I work hard at everything I do, however my children are only young once and there are only one time moments one each time, take time to enjoy a one time moment with your child and let them know that they are important to you.
I have watched many of children look out into the stands to see no one there and have seen them put their heads down, it hurts my heart so much, it means so much for them to have mom or dad or a grandparent or sibling there to see them play, it is just time and one day you will look back and see your child is grown and gone and the time you could have had together is no longer there. DO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN.
