Use Your Resources
And by resources we mean: other parents. You will have no greater allies than the moms in your neighborhood, the ones whose kids go to school with your kids, and the ones who were your high school classmates and now post constant social media updates. Find out which parks have the best slides, when the library offers a free science program, which days are half price at the amusement park, when the art supply store is having a sale. Stay-at-home parents are experts in finding fun ways to keep the kids occupied – and they’ll be glad to have your wisdom, too.
