They also want you to want to be around them. That doesn’t mean to say that they wouldn’t prefer you to go away sometimes. It just has to be their idea, not yours.
But start when they are young because it will be difficult to start later!
The key is really knowing your children enough to know when to give attention, when to stay in the background. Know how to show your love while letting them know you are their parent, not their friend. Most importantly, let them know they are wanted and very special to you!
Enjoy your kids and they will enjoy you!
