About This TV Commercial

Having a child can be one of the most joyful yet challenging parts of life. Most parents will tell you that as they watch their children grow from babies, to toddlers, to teenagers, to adults, the time "goes by too fast." Set to the iconic song "My Wish" performed by Rascal Flatts, this commercial reminds us of the importance of being involved in our children's lives, and to cherish each moment we have with them. Parenting... Pass It On.

Video Transcript

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow, And each road leads you where you wanna go,
And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile. But more than anything, more than anything
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too, Yeah, this, is my wish (my wish, for you).
May all your dreams stay big (my wish, for you).

This brought me and my wife to tears as we watched this. We didn't really realise how much our parents loved us, and it teaches us a lot as we are heading into parenthood now.

I love this camercial. Every time I watch it I think of my mom who is taking care of me. And now that I'm in middle school she doesnt have to do much, so one day I watched this camercial with her and she started to cry!... thanks for making theses wonderful commercials. I think my mom is happy to spend more time with me. keep spreading love and joy to all ppl around the world. :)

This commercial should be mainstream. This important message appears to be left out from our homes of family values. Everything starts from the home.
