Can’t Get Mom’s Attention

Dear Amy,
My mom is a total workaholic and I almost never talk to her because the phone is glued to her ear and her eyes to the computer. How do I get her to talk to me more without her shushing me? ……Worked Up

Dear Worked Up,
I am sorry your mom is on the computer when you want (or need) to talk to her, but sometimes parents do have to work. I know you don’t want to hear that, but remember that her work is what helps to take care of your wants and needs. Talk to her and let her know that you understand her work is important, but remind her that you are important too.
