How to share between 4 kids??

I have 4 wonderful children, my eldest son is 8, then my daughter 6, my daughter who is coming 4 at the end of this month and my 2 year old son. My 8 year old son is at that stage where hes growing up a bit but still needs motherly attention. My 3 youngest are all young, 6 and under. So how can i give all my kids the attention they need so they know i love them?

I'm sure they all know you love them. There are going to be different times when certain kids need more attention than others, and you have to make do with the time you have. There is sometimes no "fair" way to do it, and the squeaky wheel gets the grease so to speak. Every day you should try to engage each of them at least to ask how their day was or something to let them feel heard. Then during the week, alternate days where you focus more on one child, giving them more individual attention. Be careful if one child is too quiet or withdrawn, as they may need more attention than the louder child(ren). Just do your best, and trust that it will be enough.
