First Family Meeting and New Routines!

Our kids are SO very rou­tine based.  They do so much bet­ter when they know what’s expected of them and com­ing next in the course of our day.  I think that’s what we strug­gled with the most over sum­mer break, all the con­stant changes in our sched­ule with var­i­ous sports and activ­i­ties and other events that left our sched­ule unpre­dictable through those few months.

So, the week before school, we sat down and had our first ever Fam­ily Meet­ing.  It wasn’t any­thing earth shat­ter­ing, but rather a time for us all to come together and talk about our upcom­ing sched­ule changes, when we would be doing home­work, etc.  We also came up a list with each of the kids of things that they should/could do every day.  Some things were very basic (get dressed, brush teeth, etc.) and oth­ers were a lit­tle more “chore” like.  Once we had our lists, I found these awe­some fillable/printable chore charts.  I filled them in for each of them, printed them out, lam­i­nated them and stuck some mag­netic tape on them.  I decided to give these awe­some Dry Erase Crayons a go and they’ve been work­ing great to color in our charts!
