Rose F. Roselli January 11, 2022 Family Schedule
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.
Our family might need our attention doing our work schedule like Doctor Visits or business affairs. In instances like this, we should request time off in advance and make sure our work is caught up so we will not be behind when we return to work. Children have after hour school activities and it is important that we attend as many of them as we can. We should ask them about their activities everyday so nothing will come upon us suddenly, that way we might be able to leave work a little early by asking someone to cover for us. They will be more willing to help us out if they know about it in advance.
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.
Monthly meetings help plan for events that are coming down the road. Family members can plan for rides, babysitters and any out-of-town events that may be coming up. Monthly meetings also help coordinate holidays, birthdays and any other celebrations that take away from the normal school and work activities. Planning and scheduling does not have to be a task or chore for you or your loved ones. It can be a great way to share, bond and talk about all of the things that are going on in your lives. Planning and meeting will keep the balls bouncing in the same direction and no one will get left behind or forgotten.
This is an age-old hassle jogging work schedule and family schedule but there are a few things we can do to avoid this rush. It could also reduce stress in us. We know that it is the Parents responsibility to raise the Children and provide for them and in most cases that means we would have to work but working outside the home and raising the Children are a full time job in both cases. So what can we do to manage our schedule between the two? One thing we can do is to prioritizes, do the things that are most important first. It may not be what we want to do but it is important to do those things that are needed.
Many of us might find this usual: Last summer you were looking for a house. You contacted real estate agents, saw a few homes, and finally moved into one. You are all set and life is going as usual. However, if you sit back and look at your daily routine, you will find a lot of disorder in it. Your children do not help you with the dishes, you have to clean the rooms on your own and sometimes the laundry is delayed, and so on. What you need to do is develop a proper family schedule and organize your time according to that. Moreover, you are not doing the household chores on your own; you need the family members to cooperate with you.
