We keep encouraging you about the benefits that come from using a schedule. Here’s a testimony to motivate you in that direction:
Hi! I jumped in with Managers of Their Homes and a schedule in the spring. I have children ages 12, 8, 4, and 2. I focused on the portion of our day that is filled with school, and I was amazed at how much smoother our day went.
My son (12) struggles a lot with anxiety and anger outbursts that we are working through, and prior to the schedule, dealing with those issues took up a large part of each day. Once we implemented our schedule, he experienced such relief to know what to expect each day. Before he had been experiencing anxiety when he looked at his assignments and was worried he wouldn’t have time to get things done. When we started scheduling, not only did it relieve some of that stress but I was even able to schedule a chore time and a time for him to play with his littlest sister. This took an hour of school time, but he still got more done!
On top of that, it felt like we had a miracle in our house when we started school after a week of spring break. Monday morning came and for the first time EVER the kids jumped right back into the school schedule without any complaints! Jenn

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also
shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3
