Most of us always dream of having our own children but with the fast-paced world we live in and the increasing expenses, managing your child’s routine can be difficult especially if you are a single parent. Working is a necessity to pay bills and other expenses. If you want to give your child a happy and satisfied life, you have to be there for them, yet you have to work hard to pay all the expenses like football, swimming, college, school trips etc.
Fortunately, we are not alone in this mess and due to this, there are many businesses and helpers that can help you manage everything with work. Some of the ways you can manage all the chores and give time to your child are:
Pick and drop:
This is the most difficult part of parenting especially if you are alone. To get the pick and drop chore out of the way, you can hire a taxi cab. Now you must be thinking, “How is a taxi cab safe for my child?” Well, there is taxicab business like Taxi Kuusamo in Finland. These taxicabs are very safe and are insured. Giving the responsibility of your child’s pick and drop to a business like this not only ensures your child safety but helps you in tracking them whenever you like as well.
They have a website where you can track your cab and see if your child has been picked and dropped. You can also keep in touch with the cab driver. The taxi Kuusamo business has been expanding over the last few years mainly because of the security and high-quality service that they provide. Their charges are not very high either, so it will be not heavy on your pocket.
In addition to that, their customer service is very efficient and responsive. Your queries will be looked into and addressed at the latest convenience, unlike other taxi cab services where you have to wait for hours only to talk to the operator. Their website has all the important things listed which you can refer to. Moreover, their new recruits are educated and taught how to comply with the rules, only then they are allowed to drive the cab.
All mothers understand the fatigue of making lunches, dinners, and snacks let alone the lunchtime snack you have to give your children for school. Two things you can do to manage your entire cooking are:
- Make Saturday the cooking Saturday where you and your children cook together and pack lunches for the whole week. Using ziplock bags for packing lunches and making portions is a very convenient way to store all the food. Also, you can make weeks’ worth of burger patties and nuggets for quick fix lunches.
- If you are mostly busy on Saturdays hire a freelance cook only for Saturdays. A full-time cook charges a lot as compared to one day cook obviously. The cook can prepare whole week’s lunch and dinners. You will only have to reheat or fix the lunch for your child for the whole week. This saves a lot of time.
You would be amazed how well ahead planning works for parents. Consulting with your child’s school and other activity instructors, you can make a yearly, six months or even a monthly planner. This helps you in getting your priorities straight. No parent wants to miss their child’s games and events. If you have a planner already and know when and at what time the event is going to be, you can manage your work accordingly. It’s not like there will be events every day or every week. So, managing a few hours won’t be a problem.
