Part: III Scheduling for All of Your Fam... > Managing the Preschool Years

Chapter 8. Managing the Preschool Years

In this chapter:

  • Thinking about your preschooler's activities as part of the family's schedule

  • Balancing your preschooler's schedule

  • Giving your preschooler some responsibilities in your family's schedule

  • Teaching your preschooler beginning time management

By the time the child reaches preschool age—roughly ages three to five—the child's schedule can begin to seem more complex than the adult's. Even though there is much written about the merits of preschool, the a la carte options of preschool activities continue to grow at a dizzying rate: story hours, nature activities, art classes, music lessons, craft classes, foreign language programs, computer training, and a host of sports activities including soccer, t-ball, tennis, golf, ice skating, and gymnastics. Is it any wonder our family schedules seem out of control?
