Working Parents of Preschool Children.
Taff, Louise; Burgess, Kay
This booklet, which is primarily addressed to the needs of two-parent families, provides practical tips for working parents of preschoolers. The booklet focuses on organizing and managing time, streamlining tasks, and fostering an atmosphere of family cooperation. The first section discusses sharing reponsibilities and establishing routines. The second offers practical tips for managing each segment of a typical day. The third section provides advice about streamlining day-to-day living. Discussion begins with the recognition that there are no easy solutions for dividing child care responsibilities and household tasks so that everyone in the family is satisfied. Concluding remarks emphasize that by setting up routines like the ones mentioned in the text, family members will become familiar with what needs to be done and will know what to expect from each other.
