The option available with you is to file a petition for restitution of conjugal rights under Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act 1955(assuming you are a Hindu). 
 
Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act 1955 has been explained below for your understanding:
 
Section 9. Restitution of conjugal rights - When either the husband or the wife has, without reasonable excuse, withdrawn from the society of the other, the aggrieved party may apply, by petition to the district court, for restitution of conjugal rights and the court, on being satisfied of the truth of the statements made in such petition and that there is no legal ground why the application should not be granted, may decree restitution of conjugal rights accordingly.
 
Hence this is a legal way wherein court will direct your wife to stay with you.

You have not mentioned in which proceedings you have recevied the visitation rights.You also need to mentioned as to how old are your children.There is a limit of age in which the mother can only have the custody of the child,thereafter after that age you can seek the custody of the child from her through court.If she has not stated any reason for staying away from you then you n file the petition for restitution of conjugal rights thereby directing her through court to stay with her.
