Is your schedule super scheduled or super relaxed or somewhere in between? Has it always been that way?

  • We have a routine but it is not rushed. I can't function well with having to run here, there, or everywhere. So we don't. We both work and my son goes to a private school. On weekends it is our time and we are very relaxed and chilled. Every day is. He knows our routine and we work through it each day without problems.

  • Super relaxed...my son is nearly 2 and we are in some sort of routine now but this was initiated by my son who decided to start sitting at the table whenever he wants to eat.

  • We aren't super scheduled, we do have a few days a week that are very busy, but otherwise we are pretty relaxed.

  • My son has autism, so everything needs to be scheduled. We live by 3 words @ our home~ Structure, Schedule, Order.

  • We have a basic routine. During the school year it's: up by 7am (kids are usually up at 6am on their own), breakfast once they are up (they get their own), off to school at 7:35am, snack for my 3yo at 9am, lunch at 11am, pick the kids up at 2:30pm, snack, dinner at 5pm.
    That's it. My 3yo has school 2 days a week that add to the scheduling and 3 days a week they have classes after school (M, Th and F).
    On weekends and in the summer we just wing it. We have lunch at 11am and dinner between 5 and 7pm but otherwise we just do whatever.
