When your kid begs you to spend time with him/her, do it. You keep pushing your kid away, your kid will stop coming to you. Your kid will turn to someone else and it might not be the best. This is how kids get into trouble with drugs, sex, jail, suicide and victimization. Just hope your kid turns to someone or something better than you which does happen. Other kids might not be getting into trouble and instead create a beautiful life for themselves and, you will never be welcome in it.
Be an example of what you want your kid to become. Kids are often your reflection and your product in society.
Here are some ideas you can do with your kid(s): picnics, read to them stories when they are little, popcorn night sharing stories and games, visits to the public library and get involved in kid's school activities.
If you don't spend time with your kid now, you will end up wishing that your kid will come back. You will regret it and by that time, it will be too late.
Children are a BLESSING from the Universe!
Children were meant to be seen and hurd. People who don't think so, should not have children.
Strong people don't put others down, they lift them up.
