Healthy Life Press The title is taken from a phrase Dr. Brandt whispered into the ear of his dead eight-year-old son, Robbie, who had died after being struck by a car in front of their home as he crossed to the school bus one morning so long ago. But that morning doesn't seem so long ago when you read this book. It seems like TODAY, and the point of the book is that it could be TODAY, for professional parents who live life in the fast lane, thinking that the bits and pieces of time they can pull from their patients or clients will be enough for their own children. I must confess that, compared to Dr. Brandt and his parenting journey with his own children, many professionals come nowhere close to what he tried for in terms of communication and father-child intimacy. But for him, when all was said and done, it wasn't enough. His reason for writing this book is to help fast-laners like you or me or others we know understand that God's clock and our children's needs are not necessarily running in the same time sequence. The time, for all of us, could be now or never. We're either there, with them, or we're not. We don't control the future, or even the present - despite what we may think about our indispensability to our patients or clients. Our children need and deserve us now.
