The Time Crunch: The Modern Parent’s Dilemma

It’s the modern parent’s dilemma: the time crunch. Sometimes it feels like there just are not enough hours in the day to accomplish all of life’s tasks — and still be an effective and loving parent. 

Consider quality of time versus quantity of time. It’s all about compromising. 

  • Vacuum tomorrow so you can cuddle up with your child and a good book instead!  
  • Prepare a few extra meals on the weekend to reduce dinner prep time during the week and free up time for a quick walk with your family.  
  • Set your morning alarm for a half an hour earlier to make time to eat breakfast together. 

What compromises do you make to ensure quality time with your family?
