How to avoid over-scheduling
Take a moment and think about your child’s life. If it is too hectic, decide together where you might cut back.
Work together to prioritise needs and ensure there is enough downtime.
Plan in advance how to utilise time taken up with activities; share drops-offs and pick-ups with other parents.
Model downtime and family time as an essential part of the week.
Replace some set activities with family or playtime, such as walking or cycling together, or playing games.
