Secrets for teaching time management

The sooner a child begins chores, the easier it is to nurture their responsibility muscle, but choose tasks that are age appropriate and match the child’s ability. Show your child what you expect and then stand back.

  • In a few years preteens and teens will probably be living on their own, so it’s important to assign chores that help prepare for independent living such as cooking, laundry and car care.

    Encourage preteens and teens to organize their own calendar, including chores, homework and activities. Use Post-it® Notes to map everything out in order of importance to help prioritize and set deadlines to teach children to juggle tasks and manage time.
