It was my mom's 35th Birthday and I was 13. I wanted to do a surprise dinner and she (Bush's teacher) helped me hatch a plan.Nikki Bush, creative parenting expert
Bush says that we underestimate the impact that teachers have on our kids.
She adds that teaching is a very compassionate and nurturing profession.
Today, parents spend very little time with their children says Bush
The average full time parent spends 2 - 3 hours with their children she says.
If you have a child in Preschool or Primary School, where they are not moving around from class-to-class for different subjects, they have a teacher who is with them for 5 hours a day. That's longer than a parent is with their child.Nikki Bush, creative parenting expert
