For the benefits of our children, we can use our time by either:
earning money to buy our children experience (quality meal, better education, various opportunities)
spending the time with them
Past the point of earning enough, we assume our time spent to earn more is for the benefits of our children.
Continuing to chase dollars but not spending enough time with our children deprives them of the attention they need most growing up and teaches them that money is more important than anything else.
