Tape and texture peeling

I am new to this site and am not much of a diy pro. My problem is tape and texture is peeling around many walls and along the edges of the ceiling in my home. Is there a simple way to stop this peeling or do I need to retape and texture the many affected areas?Help!

Re-tape and re-texture
Though, in your case you may want to remove all the texture and re-tape, re-mud (joint compound), and enjoy a job done right (rather than try and make do with a poor quality and failing job)
Touching up failing texture can be a never-ending, never-up-to-par, job
