Rose F. Roselli January 9, 2020 Family Schedule
Do not over schedule. Your child`s school day is busy enough. Set clear guidelines for how many extracurricular activities they can participate in and stick to them. Do not let children organize play dates as you are picking them up from school. This is the quickest way to burn them out. They may seem full of energy coming off of their busy day, but they will melt down quickly if they do not have any downtime at the end of their day.
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?
Since you will be homeschooling your child, careful thought needs to be given not only to your home school schedule, but your family schedule will need to be integrated into the mix as well. Also make sure that your lesson plan coincides well with your educational calendar. After taking a high level look at your home school calendar integrated with your family calendar, you may decide that the traditional school year calendar of end of summer through early spring may not be the most advantageous.
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.
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.
Every member of the family must have a certain task to do. All the members must be serious about the particular responsibility they have. As you distribute the tasks among members, at the end of the day, you will have a limited burden on your shoulders, and ultimately you will feel relaxed as all the chores would be done on time. You can also switch these duties from time to time so that the members are not bored with what they are supposed to do.
