    Secrets to Success: Overscheduling

    Dr. Donna Housman       

    thumb_hotemotions_bigheader v04Are you overscheduling your kids?  It starts out innocently enough…soccer on the weekends, then piano lessons, then your daughter’s best friend signs up for dance classes and she pleads you to sign her up too.  Next thing you know, you’re running yourself and your child ragged.  How can you get a handle on your suddenly hectic schedule?

    There are so many wonderful activities out their for you children to do, that it is understandable to want to sign your child up for all of them.  The problem is that overscheduling ends up causing an overstressed parent and child!  Children only need a couple of activities to do that they enjoy: one during the week and one during the weekend.
