Teaching time management to anyone is a challenge. So when we're talking about kids, you want to teach them very early on. It's such an important concept to grasp. I like to have clocks in every room, so that they're always aware of time. I also really like to show parents how they can time activities. You can even get kids involved in the process. You can ask them, how long do you think it takes you to brush your teeth and wash your face and get ready for bed? And they may come up with some crazy number. And you can actually time them doing it and they get this realistic sense of how long it takes to do stuff. In their mind, they may think it takes an hour to put away their toys. And maybe that's why they're not doing it. So allowing them to see how long things take, it's just a great way to introduce them to time management.
