If you want to make your Parenting Life a little bit easier, there are ways to do this! Trust me, you are not alone in wanting things to run a little smoother.
Life Hacks for Parents
1. Schedules and Routines
I know this doesn’t sound exciting but implementing a routine and schedule for yourself and your kids is a great way to add some predictability in your lives. If your children can predict the basics of the day, it makes life a whole lot easier.
2. Preparations and Organization
If you know that there is a certain stressful time of the day, prepare yourself for it by being organized. For us, Mornings are the hardest so we use some life hacks for Parents to make our mornings easier!
3. Behavior Rewards
It is very important to acknowledge good behavior. Find something that works for you! We use a marble jar as incentive with a chart that shows what each activity is worth in terms of marbles and they can cash them out for things like 1/2 an hour of TV or larger items at the end of the month like Dinner out etc. The kids love it, and they also love earning marbles doing chores. If they misbehave and make Mommy lose her marbles, they lose some of theirs too.
