Family Routine That Bring Organization and Peace
Family routines and rituals got me through some pretty chaotic times when my kids were young. As a divorced, working mom, I learned to create smart routines within my little family that helped us stay organized and sane. For example, I don't like dishes and food sitting out, so one family routine we had in my home was that I would unload the dishwasher every morning, and my kids rinsed and put their dishes in the dishwasher throughout the day. At night, I would turn the dishwasher on to clean.
