Kimberly Steinhoff January 19, 2020 Family Schedule
Sometimes Children get out of school before we get off work. We should make sure someone is there to get them after school and stay with them until we return home. If we have no one to do that then a day care for him or her is recommended. It is less stressful knowing our Children are not home along without adult supervision. If we are married, quality time is necessary. Intimacy is very important so time should be spent with our spouse without our job on our mind. It is OK to talk about how our day went but not the entire time. This is the time to relax and enjoy each other.
Before you start the planning and scheduling process, you must make sure that all attendees, meaning the family members, have the required materials needed to stay on task. Everyone involved will need a planner or scheduler that can fit into a purse, book bag or briefcase. A planner is going to be a crucial part of keeping your family on task. Who does not like to be organized?
In your schedule, you should also include some fun element. For instance, mark a day every week on which you head out for a movie, dinner, or an amusement park. This will be very helpful in family bonding. Moreover, this day should be solely for the family and you must not plan a day out with your friends or colleagues on this very day. You must also consider certain variations that suddenly show up. These variations can disturb your schedule. For instance, you had a bad day at work, or you are ill. The movie plan will have to be postponed for next week then.
While mapping a home school yearly schedule is an excellent idea, remember to allow for flexibility in the schedule. Any school year, especially since the school year is taking place also centered around your home and your family, will have the need for unforeseen breaks and absences. Not to worry, just as there are unforeseen missed hours and even days in public school so will there be with your at home education.
Family life can be overwhelming at times, so what can you do to stay sane? Keep things simple, have a routine, and be flexible. It is pretty easy if you set some guidelines for the rhythm of your life that everyone in your family can adhere to. The end result? You will be left with more time for Mom and Dad and that is a really sweet thing.
The kids will love it because they can pick out a planner that`s colorful and fun for them to use. You will want to make sure they want to use it. Dad will be happy knowing that he is picking up kids on time and knowing when to schedule family business around work business. Mom will love it because she can finally buy the planner of her dreams and cost won`t be an issue.
