Thread: Being a more efficient parent.

  1. #1

    Being a more efficient parent.

    I posted this under Families / Time Management. But also wanted to ask the question from a different angle -
    <h6 class="uiStreamMessage" data-ft="{"type":1}"><span class="messageBody" data-ft="{"type":3}">Looking for tips on managing your day with 2 lpwcf in the house. Where both parents work out of necessity ,balancing the day, physio,nebs,school run, work etc is challenging.wonder if someone out there has created an efficient routine? Thanks for your thoughts.</h6>

    Is there something extra we can do as parents to run a household more efficiently when there are 2 children with cf in the house. I find usually one or the other cooperates to get their treatments done before heading off for school / work in the mornings. ( fyi we don't have the vest here , so it's 2 sets of manual physio which cannot be done simultaneously).
    Invariably, one of the two will always delay, dawdle, be unresponsive etc and just ends up slowing things down.

    Do I need to be more directive or emphatic ? As it stands I hate getting the kids out of bed so much earlier when I know their friends will be in bed an hour longer etc and turn up for school better rested for the day ahead.

    Any ideas?

    Oh my! Just when you thought. We have an 9 year old. 4 sessions per day. We are doing in it by "trial and error". Bottom line is that as long as she can get at least 8hr of rest, we are succeeding in this battle. Is a daily thing with her. Sometimes she cooperates, the other times she is not. It always shows on her PFT.
