Having a happy family is a balance, balance between time with your children, with your extended family and with your spouse. It is something that all of us face and struggle with from time to time. The best advice I can give you is to first make yourself happy, do things as a family, outings, vacations, encourage family activities and do things that will promote family unity. When you have a disagreement you need to discuss it in a manner that is not going to put anyone down or hurt their feelings. Always think about how the things you do and things you say effect others and try to treat them how you want to be treated and speak to them how you want to be spoken to. As for children you need structure, rules and consequences for their actions, rewards for good behavior and you need to ensure that they know that you love them.
