What does your child do everyday?

Postby i3mum » Tue Aug 17, 2010 2:18 pm

Hi all,

I'm curious to find out how to ensure my children spend their time wisely (in terms of academic, enrichment, playtime, rest & etc) everyday.

Can anyone share what does your child/ children do everyday(including weekends)?

Hi autumn82,

So your gal doesn't take any nap? My gals are in the am session in school, without their naps they will be feeling tired, and by the time I get back home. Does she also wake up at 8am & sleep at 8pm on weekends too?

She dropped her naps at 4yrs+ or rather, I make her drop it coz I don't want her to sleep too late in the night (9-10pm) as she was in the morn session.

Usually weekends, she will wake up ard 8-9am and sleep ard 10pm? Depends on what time we go home. Weekends more flexible for her.. :)

Hmm I see, quite true, my gals took naps, then end up at night they don't want to sleep on time :(

I agree, weekends should be more flexible. But my kids got to attend enrichment classes & sunday schools, so they need to wake up early too.

For myself, during weekends, if I know I'll be bk pretty late like 10pm and later, I will try to let my gal nap for the most an hour, else by 8pm, her "battery" will run low. :wink:

How old are your girls?

My gals are 5.5, & another pair of twins turning 4.

On weekends, we are usually very busy, attending classes & going out. I just hope I have planned the right activities for them.

I'm home with 2 kids now, and if I do have a no.3, I'd rush to go bk to work. It'd be too insane for me to handle all alone.. :x LOL!!
