Kids and Activities: How much is too much?

Parents are often overwhelmed when it comes to enrolling kids in extra-curricular activities and sports. We want them to be active, but how do we avoid wearing them out?

    We have one night that is hectic, and we always plan to grab a burger out. Other than that, she is pretty much free during the week.

    We do karate, music lessons, and chorus. Mind you the music and chorus lessons are only 30 mins per week. So that is not bad. Karate is twice a week an hour each day we go.

    My oldest is only 2.5 but he will get to do one activity at a time when he's old enough. We're thinking music lessons first then basketball or soccer.
