I examined my week and I decided I was spending too much time with kids. Is that possible? I think it is. I saw kids on Sunday and Wednesday, I had a student leadership meeting on Monday, I was taking homeschool kids to lunch, Facbooking, and on and on. I don’t think kids need us that much. It’s us who think kids need us that much.
I think overexposure:
- Dulls our voice. They hear us all the time.
- Makes us a buddy more than a leader.
- Keeps us from being objective in some cases.
- Keeps us from valuable think time.
- Depletes us emotionally.
Examine your schedule. Where can you cut back on being overexposed? What do you think, can you spend too much time with kids?
