Whootie Owl's Script
So Much to Do...So
So Much to Do...So Little Time
In the fast-paced world in which we live, adults often are
hard pressed to find the time to work, manage a household, raise a family and pursue
leisure activities....all within the confines of a 24 - hour day. Children are no
different. Between going to school, doing homework, working part time, visiting with
friends, attending athletic practice, participating in school clubs, taking music or dance
lessons, doing household chores and watching a favorite television......a child can find
himself without a minute to spare during a typical day.
Children need their parents help in
learning how to organize their time. By equipping them with some vital time management
skills now, they will be better prepared to meet the increasing demands placed on their
lives as they grow older.
- Weekly chart. Map out a schedule
each week, with specific times allotted for school, homework, work, chores,
extracurricular activities, television, dating and going out with friends.
- Permanent work space. By
mid-elementary age, your child should have his own palace for studying.
- Organized notebooks.
- Regular homework time
- Learning comes first. If your
child starts producing incomplete assignments, neglecting his homework or slacking off in
his grades, it is time to make hip drop some activities. If schoolwork improves, he can
resume the disrupted activity.
