Jot down daily family activities
You need to write down all of your family’s daily activities on a piece of paper. The list should include every activity including mealtimes, taking the kids to school, watering flowers, helping your kids with their homework, music lessons, bedtimes or even recreational activities.
Determine time for every activity
Next you should figure out how much time is required for every task. In case watering flowers or plants requires 15 minutes instead of half an hour then you can complete your task in this time. This can save you 15 minutes for another task. In case you are determining the time for driving, you should take the time of day into consideration. Depending on the certain time of day, there can be significantly more traffic that will slow you down.
You should prioritize activities according to time and goals. In case you want the homework to be finished before dinner then you need to write it down accordingly. On the other hand if you have four kids and each wants to take a bath, you should allot bathing times to each child so that everyone gets a chance to use the bathroom. Remember to balance all the activities out to make them achievable.
Include special family time
You should include family time as part of the daily schedule. It is necessary for the family to spend quality time together. This family time can be having dinner in a restaurant, going for a movie or even spending time in a park.
Post on a refrigerator
You should post the daily family schedule on a refrigerator. This way, everyone can see which task needs to be done. Remember to mark off the tasks that have been completed so that you can see the progress of your schedule.
