Does your little one HATE work time like mine? It’s like she’s got eye’s int he back of her head. She can happily play for 30 minutes in her playroom but as soon as I look at my phone to answer a work email or open my laptop – she’s ON ME!

Lately we find ourselves setting the timer for everything. It provides a a warning for bath time, bedtime, and a signal for the end of playtime….

If your child is old enough to understand the concept of an alarm try telling her/him “Mama needs to take a turn working right now. When the alarm beeps Mama can come take a break and play with you!”

Just remember to talk your child though the plan start to finish before you implement this method!
