    What to do? What to think? How to feel? After a long day at the office, away from my child, it’s time to pick him up and finally have some ‘quality time’ together. I finally arrive at his school, enter his classroom to find him either immersed in some creative activity or busily engaged with another child. Looking forward to seeing him and expecting him to feel the same I go over to give him a big hug and kiss and whisk him away so we can get going to spend that quality time and finally unwind and lo and behold I’m greeted with a quick glance acknowledging my presence or seeming disinterest morphing into downright avoidance.
