Is it normal to feel distant from your own children?

I never felt much of a connection. I love and care for my daughter, but I don't feel I can be close to her, nor that I should - my father was the same with me, dedicating his life to business, and my grandfather did the same to him to concentrate on politics.

My wife says that she sees I'm making an effort and that in her opinion I'm a good father, but all I think is "if you say so". I think she has rose-tinted glasses.
