It’s very important to keep your children on a daily schedule or routine even while they are home for the summer. It’s also very important for kids to rest, have down time or nap time regardless of their age. I’ve listed different lessons for the morning, afternoon and evening as well to make it easy for you.

What Can I Do To Help You?

Mothers I know you need a break as well, so you should take time out to relax and enjoy yourself. During this time focus on your self-love and self-care journey. You can also read some of my books to increase your spiritual journey in life.

In addition to taking care of yourself, take time out to pray to find guidance to become a better person or mother. Always remember God loves you so much, be patient with your kids, regardless of how hard it may become. Give them time to get their energy off, have fun and enjoy life. Life is too short, so live the best life, make the best of it and always keep God first in your life.

I’m going to end with a prayer for your kids.
