Tips for Managing the Summer Chaos
Summer days are here again, and the art of juggling children, carpooling to camp, doing household chores AND working full-time can be overwhelming and lead to a chaotic couple of months.
Below are a few ways you can help manage the summer chaos (without losing your mind), and still be able to enjoy the sunshine as much as possible.
- Encourage Outside Play! - We have a rule at our house... outside play must happen before the video games start! In the hot afternoons, I am a little more lenient regarding video game play, but during those morning hours, it's outside to burn off some energy. Besides, kids and grass stains kinda go together and my Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ Cold Water Power Paks are at the ready to keep my kids clothes looking good as new.
- Stay healthy! - Being on-the-go often means quick-on-the-go meals. Boost your immune system with L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™, a complete A - Z multivitamin that any kid will love! If the kids are healthy, you'll be healthy.
- Keep a routine! - Keeping a routine during the summer months may seem like a drag, but days of sleeping in and staying up late... while fun, can often become rather unproductive.
- Get your kids to help out with the chores! Having extra sets of hands around the house during the summer can be helpful. Talk to your kids and find out what types of chores they can help you with, like emptying the dishwasher or setting the table. These little and easy tasks can help give you back a few minutes of your day to just breathe, and bonus points if you can get them to do their own laundry. ;) (Be sure to try OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover Powder to get out your toughest stains!)
