Undoubtedly the most effective of all is parents taking their kids out on picnics, trips, and events of their interest play a significant role in their kids’ character building process. All these must be the thoughts on his mind when he asked his son if he would like to go out with him.

The reason why this father asked his son for planning a day out was that he was noticing his son getting distant from the family from quite some days. Kids do behave like that at times but parents should never take this sudden twist in their kid’s behavior lightly.
