Sometimes I find it hard giving each child their own attention. With my oldest asking for help w/ homework, doing almost everything for my 3 yr old, taking care of my 3 month old, and giving my middle child enough me time, I'm goingcrazy! There needs to be more hours in a day or something because I always run out of time doing everything Anyone ele dealing with this or have some advice?

I don't have this problem for a few more months officially, but look forward to hearing what others say.

Its a challenge to divide time.and I only have to divide between 2! when I am nursing and my teenager is home he comes and sits with me and I make sure to turn the radio or t.v off and I just ask him questions about his friends, the stuff he is into and let him ramble on and on........at 14 thats the attention he wants from me, not really the physical anymore, just someone to listen to long winded stories about what happened at lunch, the girls he likes, or why "the matrix" is the best movie ever

Well I deal with this now & it will become worse in Dec. My girls are 5 & 7 so they can & do a lot for themselves. We will have another baby in Dec & I think the girls will start wanting to demand more time. I am not quite sure how it is going to work. I guess I will be sending them one at a time to grandmas to get some one on one in.
