  • Out of the Box Solution

    Getting kids to go to bed quietly can be a challenge. If you have younger children you can develop positive bedtime habits by using the Privilege Pass. But what if you have older children and need an "out of the box" solution?

    Check out our latest blog to learn about a respectful, impactful consequence that is bound to help your older kids settle down and go to bed.


    Getting Organized

    We've all been there at some point. Somehow, that assignment, appointment or fun event just slipped right on by. That is why organizational skills are so important to develop. A good planner may be the key. Whether you purchase a ready-made planner or make your own, it's important that the planner you choose fits your life and your needs. If it doesn't, you'll be less likely to use it. Accountable Kids has a few simple tips will help you get the most out of your organizer or planner.

    1. Pick the right planner. Take your time when choosing a planner. Find one that fits your needs and can easily be taken with you.
    2. Make the planner a part of your daily routine. Carry it with you and remember to check it throughout the day.
    3. Coordinate your planner with the family calendar. When you receive an invitation or find out the schedule for your child's extracurricular activity, write it on the family calendar too. Then everyone will have access to everyone else's schedule so you can avoid conflicts.
    4. Fill in upcoming dates as soon as you learn them. Get in the habit of writing in your planner and using it for a reference when making future plans.
    5. Look ahead. Take time each week to look ahead a few weeks to see what is coming up. This can help to avoid surprises and give you plenty of time to get ready for upcoming events, obligations, and appointments.
    6. Color-code important dates. Keep a few highlighters on hand and use those for reminders that a due date or other important event is approaching. For instance, use a yellow caution marker for extra important things you don't want to miss.
    7. Create different sections for the things you want to organize. For example, create a section for meal planning and recipes.
    8. Create a prioritized "to do" list. One list could be for the things that must be done the next day, another is a list of things you hope to get done that week, and a third wish list could be for the things you want to do in the future. Be selective on the "must do" list so you don't get overwhelmed.
    9. Keep it simple in the beginning! If your planner feels like a chore, you won't want to keep using it. By keeping things simple, it will be fun and easy.

     


    Just A Thought

    First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. Napoleon Hill


    It is going to be a joyful day!
