Tony Leong on Taking Strained Relationships To Strengths.

Tony reminds me of the Chinese idiom 出门看天色,进门看脸色.

What it means is “when you go out, observe the color of the sky, when you come in, observe the facial expressions (of your family members).”

If you have heard him speak before, I remember him ever saying, “…a lot of times, I feel guilty about not spending enough time with my children; and I will guilt trip myself by saying, maybe I could get something nice for them.”

He goes on to say, “…but by observing their behaviors, looking at them, and sometimes even asking them, all they want from me, is for me to be with them; my presence is more important than my presents. They just want my time.”
