First of all, spend time with your children, and I don't mean playing video games or watching movies together; don't kid yourself that those things count for much. I mean time in conversation and doing things like cooking, gardening, board games, visiting events and museums — anything that requires you to talk and listen to each other. Eat meals together with no television or devices around. Read together. Draw together. Build things together. You have so much to give them and less time than you think to give it. But mostly just talk — and listen — to each other. They are only little once. I know, my sons were once two wonderful little human beings that I loved to be with but too quickly they grew into men. They are still wonderful, but the wonder of childhood with them is gone forever — distant memories. You can't get that time back. Stages of development are short in children. Their brains grow and change, but only up to a point, and the window for influence and experience closes quickly.
