It is a common issue...we want our kids to spend their non-school time wisely. Many parents turn to activities to keep their kids busy and may take on too much. They often live in their cars and have forgotten what their spouse looks like. Determine whether your family's schedule needs to be scaled back.
C'mon, admit it. You sometimes use the television set as a cheap babysitter. That's ok...we ALL do it sometimes! Ah, but it's a double-edged sword, because kids who watch a lot of TV have trouble keeping themselves entertained, which in the long run makes your job harder!
