Purposeful Parenting Month


Purposeful parenting means being really involved in your kids' lives -- knowing what they are up to and setting some positive BOUNDARIES to guide their behavior and decisions. Purposeful parenting helps you to teach good organizing SKILLS to your kids -- from learning how to manage their time to keeping their rooms in order to understanding responsibilities to others. But it also helps you make time to spend with your children and avoid CONFLICTS (over bedtimes and homework and "why can't I take dance classes") before they start. Take some time this month to examine what works and what doesn't, as it relates to parenting your children.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Set your kids up on a schedule for homework and chores -- and be sure to develop regular ROUTINES for bedtime and getting ready in the morning. Most of the conflicts that families experience stem from unclear expectations and a lack of solid rules.
Sometimes we OVERLOAD our kids' schedules by offering them too many opportunities. Teach good time management by limiting the number of activities they may participate in at once. You'll also save yourself a lot of stress along the way! 
Involve your kids in the decision-making process -- but let them know they will be expected to COMPROMISE at times. Make it clear that you have final say -- there is a fine line between running a democratic household and getting into a power struggle.
