Family life is busier than ever. The number of extracurricular activities and social events for children have increased, while parents are still managing to work and keep the home together. In Julie Morgenstern’s new book, Time to Parent, she teaches us how to achieve “a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human.”

Morgenstern focuses on four basic skills for the child and the parent -- provide, arrange, relate and teach for raising a human, and sleep, exercise, love and fun for being a human.

Involving the whole family in the organization process will ensure your success in developing peaceful routines. “When we’re organizing a closet for one, we’re the only ones who are affected, but when multiple people are using a system, whether it’s the front entry, the kitchen, the living room, it can’t be based on how one person organizes,”  explains Morgenstern in her recent podcast.

As a working mom, I understand the struggles of juggling home and work life. Coordination of drop-offs, lunches, sports and dinners is a full-time job in itself. Organization allows you to be intentional and gives you the freedom to experience the joys of being a parent. Morgenstern says, “ If you’re going to be with the kids for an hour, be with them. If you’re online working, be online working.”
