It's time to pay attention to your child.

Don't be the clock's mother. Don't watch the clock to see if it's time to eat. Watch your child.
. . . .
Clocks are great for meeting people at a certain time, but they were never intended to be an oracle by which mothers would decide whether to pay attention to a child or not. Your child knows whether he's hungry. You don't. The clock doesn't either, never did, and never will.
