...it may be a sign that you need to update your systems. Often times we have a tendency to blame ourselves when family life starts to get chaotic. We say things like "I just can't keep it together" or "One of these days I"ll figure out how to stay on top of things."
The reality is that raising kids and getting them to all their activities can be a full-time job in and of itself and what works during one season of life doesn't always work during another. If you've gotten to a point where you consistently feel like you're drowning, it doesn't mean that you're a failure of a parent. It just means you need to try something new.
Born from of a season of life where we felt like we were drowning in details, we created our calendaring method to help you manage family life more efficiently. If you can sit down for 30 minutes and plan out key details for the next 3 months you're going to be less stressed and have more time to have fun with your kids.
You're also going to spend less time beating yourself up for forgetting yet another practice, rehearsal or birthday party and you're going to spend more time feeling like the organized, thoughtful parent that you are!
We created a simple step-by-step guide to walk you through the process of getting organized for three months at a time. Get the guide here. You'll be on your way to organized family life in no time!
