Kids and Time Management

Taking the Nagging out of Parenting
Sound too good to be true?
Read on……….
I returned home from teaching the first session of an organizing workshop.  One section of the workshop was devoted to “Becoming the family Manager”.  Some of the specific skills we discussed included:
  • Thinking through what needs to be done before forging through our day.
  • Based on these needs, developing a plan of action.
  • Writing that plan down and sticking to it.
  • Using the “Kindergarten Model of Organization” and storing everything needed for a specific task at its point of use.
  • And using a timer to help keep you on task.
Soon after returning home, I checked my emails and found a recommendation from a fellow organizer for a great new product, On Task On Time for Kids, by Timely Matters, Inc.  The timer is designed to help children develop these same time management skills.
On Task On Time for Kids is a unique time management system designed to be used by kids to help them organize routines in the morning (getting ready for school), in the afternoon (transitioning from school to home activities), and in the evening (getting ready for bed).
Daily routines are created by applying task stickers to a Routine Disk.  The Routinre Disk is then inserted into the On Task Timer Unit, and the child sees what tasks should be completed, what tasks should be done now, and what tasks are coming up next.
It is designed for children between the ages of five and twelve and is available with both girl and boy illustartions.  It is easy to read (even for pre-readers), fun to look at, and easy to carry.
“Let On Task On Time for Kids ease you and your family in and out of your day, reduce stress, and take the nagging out of parenting!”
Check it out.  Give it a try……….
Visit Timely Matters, Inc. at www.timelymatters.com for ordering information.
Hmm……Do you think we could come up with a version for the High School student!?
Blessings to you!
