  • Re: Time Management

    This is my experience: My husband and I are both disabled with back problems. We both homeschool our boys, 8 & 11. Then the days we have appointments, nothing gets done. and we play catch up. Also, we each have a different way of teaching, and often argue about it. On days when we are in too much...

    Relax...let his dirty socks sit there and pile up. He will get the picture. Go to McDonalds or something. Your baby is only small once, please enjoy every mingoute. This is a wonderful time. Let your 3 year old pick out clothes for the baby. Give her a doll baby(baby born) like your newborn baby. Then...

    We have 3 children ages 8, 11, & 14. We decided to have a chart with cards that they can choose from. Each card holds a specific chore with the amount that they get for that chore. They have to wait for me to tell them which of our stack needs to be done, then they get to choose. They do get paid...

    I like the ticket idea. It's a good lesson, too! I've adopted a card system. My girls start the day with a small stack of cards that each have basic chores on them. By the end of the day, all of their cards should be back in the box... if they still have it out, it still needs to be done. I've...

    I applaud what you are doing. Great job and just think of all the valuable memories you are building with your son. It is not uncommon to get into the cycle you describe. I am raising my grandddaughter and homeschooling her and tutoring others and sometimes I find myself there too (frustration, anger...

  • Time Management

    It has taken me awhile to find the right formula. My wife's schedule has been part of the problem, she is a nurse and works 12 hour shifts, her rotation is 3 days on, 2 off, then 2 on and 3 off. I am the stay at home dad, and I try to give Rita and James their time on her days off. We started home...

    Elsa, Toddlers and preschoolers can be challenging! I know, I have a 23 month old--the youngest of 4 children. He can make messes much faster than all the rest of us put together can clean them up! :-) Some things I have found to be helpful are: Limit the amount of clothing, toys, puzzles, books, etc...

  • Re: Chore wars!

    In our house we try to take the negative out of chores as much as possible. Recently, my oldest (11) has been really complaining about having to do his chores. He was beginning to act like unloading the dishwasher or taking out the trash would take him "forever"! I decided to play a game with...
