The Avocado Parenting Thread Navigates Schedules!

Hello fellow parents and caregivers of children!

There are a bunch of new parents here (raises hand) and there are plenty of veteran parents, as well as people who have experience caring or helping to care for children, like teachers, baby-sitters, aunts, and uncles. Coming together will help all of us, whether we need advice, commiseration, or just a space to let it out. Being a caregiver of small humans can be hard, but also rewarding and wonderful, so we can also share in the joys of watching little humans get to be big humans.

This week, let’s talk about Schedules.

Some kids have really active schedules, with lots of different extracurricular activity, after school care, sports, music lessons, tutoring, regular old homework, etc. How do you keep it all straight? How often do you run late to things? And for older kids, how are you doing getting them to manage their own time?

(Feel free to post about things unrelated as well, the prompt is just a suggestion.)
