  • Always running late? Set a timer to ring 10 minutes before you need to leave.
  • Laminate a list of must-haves for the diaper bag. Scan it every time you leave the house so you don't forget anything.
  • Institute a two-minute rule: If a task can be accomplished in two minutes or less, do it then and there. Things always take less time at the moment.
  • Label toy bins with photos of the items that belong inside to encourage your child to help with cleanup. You can add words as well to foster reading skills.
