What is Rhythm in this Context and How Does it Work?
Rhythm is a flexible form of time management that directs the basic order of your daily routines and tasks. It is a lot like a schedule without the rigidity. Daily and weekly rhythms and routines also make family life easier. Children are much more able to handle the transitions and happenings of daily life when they become normalized.
Rhythm is the magic word for parents and educators of young children. Young children thrive on a simple, flexible rhythm that carries them through their day, through each week and through the slowly unfolding years of their lives… Many problems we experience with our children can be addressed by setting a simple daily rhythm that allows their needs to be met in a timely way. (Oppenheimer p. 29)
Without structure, chaos reigns and overwhelm will rule your world. Believe me, I know… I’ve been there!
