My phone’s been on silent for years. I also turn off notifications. I think my phone’s a godsend. I’m no longer chained to my desk and PC. I do more work from my phone than my PC now. It’s amazing.
A great bit of advice I heard was, when one of your kids comes over to you and you’re on your phone, make a show of making them pause, putting the phone *face-down*, and then looking them in the eye with your full attention. Watch their little faces light up.
