My ex-wife wants me to be more present for my kids.

With "present" I don't mean present when he's with his kids, but to see them more and spend more time with them in general. Is "present" ok to mean that?

If yes, is "for" ok in the sentence or should it be "with"?

My ex-wife wants me to be more involved with my kids.

Is this sentence ok, too? And does it basically mean the same thing?
