Are you finding it hard to be motivated / bothered with your kids? Whatever you choose to do about improving your relationship with your kids and your motivation, take it one step at a time. Don't try to introduce too many changes to your actions or too many rules for yourself at one time. Otherwise you are setting yourself up to fail. You can only deal with small amounts of permanent change at a time. Any more, and you bound to lose motivation and slip back into comfortable old ways.
