I wanted to help my children develop a sense of independence and know what was expected. Not only did I wanted to make sure each child knew exactly what they needed to do, since I tend to confuse and mix the names during times of stress, I also needed to know what I had told my children. It made it easy to follow through. My husband created this spreadsheet planner to help us organize our lives. Each editable excel spreadsheet was individualized for each child. A blank pdf spreadsheet is found here.
