I was in some desperate need for my kids to stop acting so shocked when I asked them to clean their room or when they’d wait till Friday morning to start their homework. Then I had a huge duh moment.. My kids need a planner!! Sunday nights I grab my planner, my husband grabs his phone, and my kids each get their own page printed out for the week. Then we plan out our week and see where we might need to make adjustments once we see everyones schedules together.
My kids always do so much better with transitions when they knows what’s being thrown their way. So things like “Mom’s workout class” penciled in on a Wednesday night will help them be prepared for Dad doing bedtime. Or they can take a look at how much homework they have and space it out so one day isn’t completely overwhelming. It’s such a great life skill to be able to plan out and prioritize your todos and I love the idea of starting with them young so they can feel like they have some control over their life.
This October themed planner page has a space for their name, a place to fill in the dates, sections for morning afternoon and evenings, homework, chores, and a place to reflect on gratitude every day. It’s open-ended enough to be flexible for everyone's different schedules but structured enough that even the youngest of kiddos can see what’s going on. Print it large or small and hang it in a place that's easily accessible for your kids.
Being a kid is hard. You don’t have a lot of control over what comes at you day to day. So this is intended to be so much more than a chore chart that will be forgotten two weeks in. Every little detail was thought out so it could be a little piece of security and peace that will set your kids up for success and help them thrive. Plus it’s really freaking cute so major bonus points for that one.
