‘My son, he does not want to come home. He hates me. Everyday after reaching home, I have to spank him to get him home. He just want to be at my sister’s place, really’.
‘Does that hurt you?’
‘Yes, very much. I feel bad’.
‘Do you tell him stories? Do you play with him?’
‘No, once I go home, I have to cook, clean, finish stuff, I don’t get time to spend with him. Earlier, he used to play with my mother-in-law, now she too does not show any interest, nor does he.’
‘Tell him a story everyday. Bake something special for him. He is a kid, he needs attention and love, so give it. Leave everything else and sit down with him’.
‘hmm, he likes my sister more!’
‘Do you feel jealous of that?’
‘Yes, but because I am busy I try not to think about it, it hurts me though that my son does not spend time with me! actually I don’t spend time with him.’
‘My child is a young adult, yet he needs me too, that is not demanding, it is just their showing their love,so be with him, give him your love, set your priority’.
‘Maybe I should cook something special for him, I had him after so many years, everything I do is for him, still I have no time for him’.
‘Yeah, good we talked today, I will be with him more, listen to him and try and play with him even!’.
