Keeping up with schedules

Life for children in the new millennium can be really busy. Just keeping up with what is happening when can be a difficult job.

Do you have a family calendar? If so, can this be put on-line so that you can share in what is happening when you are away from the children, either working or travelling or because you are separated from the children’s mother? This will make it easier for you when having a telephone or video chat – the children will feel special because you know what activities they have on and can ask about them.

An on-line family calendar will also be of real assistance when you are with the children – you will have a head start in keeping up with what is on when and you can plan around key activities and not miss out.
