Do everything you can with your kids. Play with them, Pray with them, take them everywhere. To the grocery store and to the mechanic, the retirement home to visit Aunt Sue and the bakery to get your bread.

You have to dedicate some time to being together, in the same room, focused on each other, doing things together for your relationship.
