Treat your week like a well-oiled machine and keep things rolling with weekly planning meetings. Sit the family down for a chance to chat about the week either on Saturday or Sunday night and make sure everything for the upcoming week is in the schedule. Do something fun once the dirty work is done, such as playing a board game or heading to the local ice cream parlor. Pick up a calendar that can be placed in a spot everyone will see, or take advantage of an online planner such as momAgenda ($5), an app that will do it all for you — and send reminders to all the members of your smart family.
