Involve the Family
No one person should develop the routine of a family. Incorporate everyone’s thoughts and ideas when creating a routine. The key element to a routine is that it’s easy to follow and, most of all, works for everyone. Have a family meeting and allow everyone to voice their concerns and provide feedback to the circumstances at hand.
Have everyone list their obligations – practices, meetings, church events and etc. Mapping out all of the events, in the beginning, will help cover all bases.
