I was recently introduced to a new OnTask OnTime for Kids product, which is a "children’s illustrated task and time management system" that was created to teach lil ones how to complete tasks on their own.
It was invented by Moschel Kadokura, a mother of triplets plus one, who believes that setting up a daily routine and giving children a focal point helps them finish tasks in a timely manner.
I agree with her, but am unsure whether I have time to teach time management with a special device, or if I'd rather teach by example. And, I don't want my kids to grow up feeling rushed. There is something to be said for spontaneity. What do you think?
