Hello all! I will be starting a a primary SCITT course soon and wanted some very <u>practical </u>advice from those who are currently ON the course or have experienced it about how to organize your schedule with two children. I have two children aged 4 and 12 and need advice about how to organize my life to make sure things still get done. I am aware of all the planning etc and read the advice about getting a cleaner, online shopping, and lowering standards regarding housework (!) etc but I wondered how people in a similar situation managed with all their "To-Do's" and how they organized their schedules on a DAILY basis to make sure their families dont feel COMPLETELY neglected during the year. Do trainees use teacher planners or schedules? Do you use day to page diaries or a custom made planner to include all you need on their eg reminders and apps and school commitments....? Any advice about the practical side of organizing your days/weeks/terms would be much appreciated as I feel my current system of how I organize my time and days will not be sufficient to meet the SCITT demands the biggest worry I have is that "lying awake at 3 am worrying about FILL IN THE BLANK" because I have worked hard over the past few years to not be like that and I would not want my stres levels to be even higher due to a system which was inadequate for aorganizing all my needs.. So people..planners, diaries, notebooks, schedules....what's your advice?!
