If the father is never at home, it’s not a home; it’s a house.
If the mother of the home does not have time to speak to the children or the father, it’s not a home; it’s mere accommodation.
To make it a home, you need to have a family.
To make it a family, you need to have communication.
To be able to communicate, you need to spend time with each other.
You need to put your phone aside, turn off the WiFi at ten in the night.
Or, at nine, switch it off so that none of you are on your phone, including your children.
We tell our children: “You are on the phone the whole day or the whole night.”
