Today, families are busier than ever. We rush from one thing to the next, juggling school, work, kids, and maybe even a social life (if we’re lucky). Unfortunately, running at this pace can be hectic and stressful for all those involved. Parents, in particular, may have trouble coordinating their kids’ sports practices, dance lessons, and school activities. I won’t even mention all the extra time required for other activities not related to kids.
So how can you organize your life so you can get everything done without ripping your hair out? The solution is a Family Command Center binder. The Family Command Center is essentially a notebook that contains everything you need to know about your family, including upcoming activities, emergency phone numbers, etc. It contains everything your family needs to know in a central location so everybody can see exactly what’s going on at any given time. Taking the time to create this simple solution WILL help reduce your stress and avoid unnecessary hassles and confusion.
For about $10, you can create a Family Command Center binder using basic items found at your local office supply store. If you recycle supplies you already have at home, you may be able to create your binder for free!
