So with 3 kids in the family and trying to adjust to a new routine I've decided to chart and post our new routine a la SuperNanny style so that the children can get on board. In looking at at the recommendations for this chart I saw that SN recommends putting in enough 'dither time' for the children to wash and dress:
A state of indecisive agitation.
to be uncertain or indecisive; to act nervously or indecisively
Okee. I have spent whole afternoons dithering...maybe we should just call it "wiggle room"?
Leeway, latitude, flexibility...
Helpful examples of other family's posted routines are here.
I found the routines suggestions when looking for sample House Rules for me to post in helping to achieve harmony in the household.
It's 100+ degrees almost every day here so when we're not looking for ways to be harmonious together, we are always looking for a way to chill out together...
