How do you spend time with each child individually

Since my divorce my oldest daughter tell me that I don't pay her any attention and alot of her anger is towards her sister. We do things together, she's in different organizations, but that's not what she is talking about. I decided that since the youngest is in daycare and the daycare doesn't close until 6:00pm that I would leave her there on some days and pick up my oldest from school and spend some time with her before picking up the youngest one.

 Sounds like a fantastic plan!

For me, my kids are a little older.  My daughter has some after school activities so my son and I will sometimes go get ice cream while waiting for her.  Sometimes my son will stay home (he's 12) and my daughter and I will go do something like get pedicures or run to the grocery store.  We just make it work.

My kids now live in separate states, so when I go visit them is when we do one-on-one time, but I don't get the jealousy thing from either.  They are ten years apart in age and one's a boy and one's a girl, so not sure if that makes a difference.  When they were younger, there were times at Christmas when one might get more than the other (ie, one would get a new computer), but even then they weren't that competitive.  They realized that it was one of their years and that the next year the other would get whatever.  I guess I'm pretty lucky in that respect.

Sounds like a good plan. I only have one child so this isn't an issue.
