Are you close to them? Do they come to you and talk to you about anything and everything? What sort of activities do you do with them as a family, and if you have more than one child, do you have one-on-one time with each of them on a regular basis?
I have three kids, ages 8, 10, & 12. We are pretty close, I suppose. When they are with me (shared custody w/their dad) we watch movies, color, go to the park, play games, and that sort of thing as a family. On their birthdays, I spend the day with just them. They love the one-on-one time with me, and I think it makes us closer. And it's special because it doesn't happen that often.
In the summer we go to the beach or the pool, since it's really too hot to go to the park.
What are some other fun activities you do with your child/ren?

I have 3 sons; 26, 23, and 15. We have always been pretty close. They don't tell me everything, but they come to me or their dad with most things. As long as we are in on the big important stuff, they can have their private stuff. We have always been involved with Boy Scouts, camping, skeet shooting, fishing, going to NASCAR races, riding dirt bikes/4-wheelers, restoring anything old, the marching band, any sport they wanted to play, snow skiing, water sports, and long lazy weeks at the beach. We always take a family vacation every year. We are involved with the extended family, helping on my dad's livestock farm, and looking after medically fragile grandparents until their death. Being a member of a family isn't an accident. You are born into a family, but being a member of it is deliberate. We deliberately made an interactive family.
