When you’ve got a family with varied interests, hobbies and study loads, it’s a challenge to keep everyone on track—not to mention, getting enough quality family time together and finishing those pesky chores! We’ve been there, and we know it’s difficult. Here are our top tips for keeping everyone organized, focused and on target:
For most people, being unorganized can create a sense of chaos and uncertainty.
What does organization mean to you? Establishing what makes you feel organized —whether that’s a clutter-free house, an efficient filing system or planning weekly meals, and making that a priority, can help you feel productive and in control.
Keep it visible
Organization is key—but it can go to waste unless everyone is keeping in communication and clear on where they need to be. A family wall calendar is an excellent way to do just that. Keep it in a high traffic common area like the kitchen or dining room so that everyone can pencil in important dates and schedule items, as well as being able to see where other family members are.
Ask for help
Whether it comes from within ourselves or from others, it’s easy to feel the pressure to ‘go it alone’—but that doesn’t have to be the case. Asking for help from your partner, extended family, other parents at school, or even teachers is perfectly acceptable, and in fact should be encouraged. Often we aren’t even aware that someone is struggling until they reach out—so don’t be afraid to speak up.
Cover your bases
Worrying can take up an alarming amount of time and mental energy—but putting plans in place for when the unexpected arises can go a long way in creating peace of mind for you and your family.
