12 yr ols is feeling lonely. should i quit my job?

HI I am on this forum first time. I have a only son 12 years old. He is pretty perfect in all the area. I am worrried about him as he is very sentimental and emotional. We me and my husband are working. sometimes he complaints about feeling lonely and ask me to stay at home. Can you suggest me if I should quit my job (as Financially we dont have much issue) and be with him after his scholl hours.

thank you for asking
if you don't have financial issues and your kid requests for your time , give it to them before it is too late. losing job for the children sake is very generous and sacrificing and admiring and will have its good fruitful results. please do it and groom your kids. that itself is a wonderful job mother nature has assigned to you.
take care

I agree it is the most important time. This is when they get into trouble. Try to get him into a sport or chess at school. Does he likes sports...biking, camping is the time to spend the time with him....when he becomes 18 and has taken up drugs, smoking and or drinking it is too late.
