Quora Question: Children’s Routines

A Quora Question and How I Answered It:

What tips do you have for the kids’ routine chart?

I personally would not do a routine chart, kid’s lives are too structured as it is and most kids don’t get to enjoy the freedom like I had when I was a kid. Even my own children had less freedom.

To counter that, I provided many different options for my kids and my daycare kids to select based on their own interests. Choices ranged from shooting baskets to swinging on a swing set, playing make-believe, reading in a quiet corner, playing computer games, group games like tag or hide ’n seek, painting at an easel, doing crafts, playing with dolls, and more.

For your own children, determine what activities they need to do outside of the home such as team sports, youth groups, dance classes, etc. At home, provide as many options as you can. Make a poster that illustrates them all and let your kids decide what they want to do. Yes, some will want to do nothing but play video games or read books, but you can extend these ideas to getting programs that teach your gamer how to write their own computer programs and supplies that encourage your reader to write their own books.

Supply fun items like play dough, bubbles, jump ropes, sidewalk chalk… teach them how to play hopscotch.

Think back to the things you liked to do when you were a kid and provide those ideas for your own kids.

Childhood should be fun, not work.
