Why a Routine will Save Your Sanity!

For the first time in a long time, we took the summer off, like the public school system, and this will be the last time EVER! It has been a summer of chaos. My children have been at each other’s throats. I’ve had to fight them tooth and nail to get chores completed, or remind them several times. It is if they had their ears turned off for the summer.
