Managing Time

As my kids get older, it’s more and more difficult to carve out family time. How do you do it?

Our Daddy MD Guide’s reply: I think it’s important to find an activity that you enjoy, which can help you to get away from day-to-day stressors. We live inMiami, and having decent weather year round, my family has gotten very into boating. The nice thing about boating is that when we go out on the boat together, we’re literally in the same boat together all day. It’s wonderful family time. We’re not pulled in different directions, racing to this birthday party or that errand. Plus, there’s nothing nicer than the end of a day on the boat, driving home with my wife with all three of our kids passed out from exhaustion in the backseat.
