I feel awful sometimes because I am a working mother which works a midday shift. I feel as if I do not spend a lot of quality time in communicating with my 20 month old. My husband watches her and is there with her while i'm away, but he works from home and so he pretty much leaves her with the television. She have learning dvds that she watches daily and is learning a great deal from them. The problem i'm facing is that when I get home at night, I have very little time to talk and play with her, but when i try to communicate with her she only communicates if I'm watching television with her and acting out what I see on television. If the tv is off she rarely gives me the time of day. Do anyone have any answers to that or is that the way it's going to be considering the fact that my schedule won't change anytime soon?
