Organize your family (Bilingual Kids インターナショナル幼稚園)

The busiest times in any family are usually the hour after waking up and the hour before bed. These times can be hectic and stressful. The best way to cope with this is to be better organized.


One way to do this is to have organizational  a chart on your wall.  You can call one your “Chart for Organization. “ Divide your chart into three columns.


1)  Things that need doing

2)  Things in Progress

3)  Things done.  


Using “Post it” notes each person places their task on a note and starts it in the “Things that need doing” column. They then progress their note across the chart into the next column until it gets done.


If you have young children who can’t yet read, use simple pictures (a tooth brush for example reminds them to brush their teeth).


You can expect that it will take a few days for your family to get used to this but after a week or two you will be amazed at how the mornings and evenings flow much better. Getting your family super focused in this way will make a big difference in the quality of your time together.
