Schedule Overload

Updated: Feb 14


Over the past two weeks our family has been in the chaotic rush to get back in the swing of school. Orientations, Dr. visits, school shopping, lunch packing, first days, etc. It can be an exhausting whirlwind with school and fall schedules starting back up. Thankfully the first week of school is almost behind us and we have begun to slip back into the normal routine of fall.

As parents we want the best for our kids, and in our attempt to raise up well-rounded successful children it is easy to become overwhelmed with all that is expected of us. Not only do our kids need to do well at school, which means time spent with homework and special projects for class…. but we also feel the pressure to introduce them to new activities and clubs/organizations. We want to make sure our kids have the experiences that will help them in the future; so sign them up for sports and music lessons….. Oh, and don’t forget that we can’t settle for successful athletic geniuses… they better be social as well so better make room in the schedule for friends/parties and other events. With only one child this can be exhausting, let alone multiple kids.
