Spring is (almost) here and along with it comes spring soccer, baseball, softball, lacrosse, track and field, the spring musical and more! It's easy for the whole family to become overwhelmed with many activities. And then there's schoolwork and family celebrations. When do kids just get to play?
Do you set a limit regarding outside activities for your children? How do you help your children and teens manage their commitments so that they don't become overwhelming?
