What do you think is the hardest time of day for you (with your children)?

Mornings? After school? Bedtime?

  • After school. It is a horrible mad rush from the time they get in the door until bedtime, which is only 3 hours. We have to squeeze in homework, chores, piano, dinner, baths, and the bedtime routine...

  • There really is no hard time of the day with my Son. I would say bedtime, only because it's so hard for me not to miss Him! hehe.

  • After school. When my older kids get home, my 3yo turns into super-monster, he wants to play with the kids and they have homework.

  • various hard parts but my LEAST fave is 4-6. The kids both still really need naps but I deprive them in order to make bedtime appropriate for how early the school bus comes. 4-6 any homework is done, snack is done, way too early for dinner, etc. It's a hot mess time, we argue a lot.

  • Anytime I was too dense to notice that they were hungry 20 minutes ago.

    Kept fed and watered and having a variety of activities, from outings to quiet times, meant that no time of the day was uniformly bad.
