I have three children. A 6 y.o son who has a mood disorder, a 9 y.o daughter, and a 12 y.o daughter. My 6 y.o ds has severe behavioral issues. I spend most of my time keeping him out of trouble, or dealing with him when he finds some. It seems like my good girls get left out and I know that they do not get enough attention. How can I find time for them? What types of things would mean the most to them?

Above is a good idea, once a month sounds more do able. My children are close in age, but I offset their bedtime, rotate who gets alone time with Dad, other comes up with me to read alone and talk, then I read to the next one when Im done. Plus they get alone time with Dad, which is great since he works so much, sometimes its the first they've seen of him all day. My kids are younger then yours but I think since your already thinking about it, your aware of the time you have to give to one, I think your already being a good mother to all. People that out loud show more love to another, I doubt ever even think about it. I grew up with siblings, I didn't think one was loved more then the other.
