My mom spent most of my childhood watching soap operas and reading books (to herself). I never felt neglected. My dad worked and when he was home he was sleeping or watching TV.
I'm usually on my computer during the day but I provide just as much attention as my mom did when I was growing up. When I was a kid we were expected to entertain ourselves. All kids were. We didn't need mom and dad engaging us every moment of the day or playing with us. I expect the same from my kids. We talk and have fun watching TV together or playing video games together but otherwise they do their own thing and I do mine just like when I was a kid.
Oh, and my kids aren't allowed to use the computer and don't have educational toys (they have a Wii and DS).
