With the return of the school year, your family’s lives will start to go in all different directions. From swimming meets to guitar lessons to Honors Society, you’ll have all sorts of appointments to plan and track, with all the logistics to go with them.
Before things get out of hand, take a moment with your family to get on the same page. The same planner page, preferably. Gather around your monthly calendar for September and draft out how everyone’s agenda interacts, including activity times, transportation schedules, and at-home preparation time, like practicing music or sports. Once you have everything squared away, transfer the family’s schedule to a wall calendar and display it where everyone can see it.
