How to Help Kids Cope When Mom Goes Back to Work

Commit to a Calendar

If you haven’t had a central family calendar up on the wall where everyone can see it until now, then it may be time to start one. Give everyone in your family a different color of marker to list out their big sports games, musical and dance recitals, project due dates, and other key events, and then add your own meetings, proposal deadlines, and major assignments. This helps the kids see that their responsibilities and yours deserve the same respect and preparation, and it also prevents you from forgetting their permission slips, choir uniforms, and science fair projects (which is a guaranteed way to make you all feel bad).
