I have a two-year-old son named Danny. Recently, there has been an increasingly serious problem between us, which makes me very upset about the ability to deal with him. Considering that Danny is the only child in the family and has no chance to reach out to his peers, and I often leave home, I try to vacate the time outside the work break and play with him. I will either read to him, or play games with him and do as much as possible to make him happy.
But because we often play together, there will be problems between us. As long as I am at home, he must call me to play. If I am not interested, it is difficult to say "no" to him. Because I played very hard at the beginning, the boring Danny wouldn't feel it, so he often felt very depressed.
Although I am very reluctant to reject him, I found that I have refused more and more times. I just can't think of it. When I don't want to play, what can I say besides "no"? The result is that the more I reject him, the more he wants to win affirmation and acceptance from me. For the boy of two years and three months, can he understand that even a father who is often not at home has the right to refuse his request, but at the same time he refuses, he does not mistakenly think that Dad does not like him?
It can be seen that you are the same as most responsible parents and are overly indulgent in the various requirements of the child. If you are deeply guilty of refusing your child's request, you can only say that you are too valued.
Children like Danny are more difficult to deal with (especially for responsible parents). From your description, your life must be regular in order to take care of Danny's feelings. At this point, you have to make a form to arrange his day's work, not only to let him have time to play with you, but also to allow you to have a leisure time.
