Do you want to hang out today?
In the morning...
In Paul's Room
I can't wait to hang out with dad!
I'm sorry but, I can't hang out with you today, but we can hang on the weekends.
Why can't dad ever hang out with me?
Paul's dad ask if he wanted to hang out and Paul said,"Yes!" so Paul and his dad will hang out after school.
Thanks, maybe I'll try that.
Paul was in his room getting ready to hang out with his dad. He was so happy his dad wanted to hang out and that they were actually going to hang out.
Hey dad, I can't hang out on the weekends because I have to catch up on homework that I missed waiting for you.
Paul was waiting and waiting and waiting for his dad to come home but he started to loose hope. Later his dad sent a voicemail that said,"
I'm glad we finally get to hang out.
Mr. Matthews noticed there was something wrong with Paul and he held Paul back to talk to him after class. Mr. Matthews gave advice to Paul and told him to talk to his dad.
Why don't you express your feelings to a trusted adult?
Paul went home that day and tried to call his dad, his dad didn't pick up so, it went to voicemail and Paul expressed his feelings to his dad.
We could rebuild our relationship slowly. I love you but that's how I feel.
Also I don't want to spend another day waiting and looking out the window, I'm sick and tired of it.
Paul and his dad are now starting of small but they will rebuild their relationship.
