As a father, the number of time we spend in our office, we have to reserve some time for our child too at home. Consider it is for your whole day stress reliever. As soon as you get home after you get refresh, just planned your kid's time not to go out with their friends, but spend at least an hour with you. This way you will get a company after your hectic office hours. Study them, ask their concerns - School life, teachers, friends.
From their regular life father has to identify the bad habits out of their regular activities. The problem kick starts from here if you miss this one.
With your kids, you have to be a mirror with them, they should love you as a friend. The best quality of their favourite friends and that quality should be present in you too. If it does then not to worry, be a mirror, you just have to reflect that nature your son/daughter love. Next day onward he will consider you as one the best friends.
Shaking the hand and a smile brings a lot in office, impress your boss and your life becomes easy for that day. If you start this practice with your kids when you return home then what will happen? Your son or daughter tells you the truth about their life, gradually they will keep you updated about them and you will feel good, you will share their stories with your colleagues, friends while on the lunch break.
If you made such level of understanding between both of you then the situation is in your hands, take them at their favourite places, do some shopping and surprise them, find their happiness and follow it. Every time on their mistakes, end with a great example which they could learn fast and avoid their next mistakes rather than slapping them. Remember the anger brings only anger, it never seeks for peace.
We get calls from the office, on the urgent and priority we have to finish that task, just consider one more call in your daily life, keep update with your kids what is happening in life. One call at least in a day, not necessary you should call, make him/her love calling you and sharing you whatever happening in school.
