Are you so overworked that you have no time for your children
Today's society requires parents to do a million things at once. They have to juggle working, and spending time with their kids, and baseball games, their better halves, and even their extended family. Sometimes when you are juggling all of this stuff you realize that you have not been spending enough time with your kids, but even once you come to that realization you come to another conclusion that even though you want to spend more time with your children you just can't. Their are many ways that you can help solve this issue, but you have to try and make time for you children. If you are overworked it most likely won't be easy, but it is possible.
If you have Teens finding time with them can be hard
If you are a parent with teenagers you will find that it is harder to make time with them then you think. Many teenagers don't want to spend time with there parents. They think that it is uncool and lame, but you can get through to them. Firstly, you cannot pressure them. You have to let them want to spend time with you. You can't push; what I mean by that is you can't say I am declaring this night a night where you have to spend time with me. That won't work that will make your teens want to pull away. Instead you can try to do things that your teens want to do. For example, make a Facebook account and chat with your kids. Figure out what they do in their spare time. Once you get to know what your kids do in their spare time it will be easier to connect with them on their level.
If you feel like your kids don't want to spend time with you be patient it will take some time for them to open up and bypass the whole uncool thing.
