  • Find chores that the kids can do -- sweep the kitchen, set the table, sort the laundry, fold the towels, feed the dog, pack school snacks.
    Anything that will help lighten your load. The younger you get them in the habit of helping, the easier it will be. Also think about planning meals on weekends. Make double meals so you can reheat leftovers in the microwave, make a casserole you can freeze for later in the week, try to always think how to cook extra so you can save cooking on another night. If you brown hamburg, double the batch then season some with taco seasoning, and throw the rest into spaghetti sauce for another night.
    The homework should get easier as they get used to it. When my kids complained about homework I said "It's not for me, you go tell you teacher you don't want to do it" They always got it done lol
