Teachers in the classroom can always tell which parents are addicted to their mobile phones and Blackberries...their children are the ones who are distracted and beg for attention noisily!
Focused time with your child will yield huge results. You can arrange a schedule where you retreat to your corner of the living room to work when your child is engaged in his or her own work, whether that be putting together a puzzle or watching educational DVDs -- we know some of these purchases were made with parental R&R in mind, that's okay;)
