Joint Family Planner
The Joint Family Planner was designed to help coordinate and communicate everyone’s schedules and activities, track grocery lists, manage to-do lists, plan ahead for dinner, and keep the whole family on the same page. It is ideal for parents to organize their families and have a stress free life. All the activities you do in life can be scheduled with this planner.
The Joint Family Planner has 6 highlighted features to help organize your family dynamic.
The planner allows you to organize activities, monthly expenses, create a budget to live within your means and helps your family stay healthy with a meal and create an exercise program. For people who have joint custody or a blended family, it allows all involved to remain organized as a group with keeping up with the kid’s schedule.
If you’re interested in staying organized and getting stuff done you’ve got to have a system for keeping track of tasks and appointments. Just get used to the idea that everyone needs to have, and know how to use, a planner. When you visually see something that you have accomplished, such as checking things off your day planner, our body’s reward us for our efforts. This reward comes in the form of a chemical the brain releases called dopamine. Some people prefer a paper planner while others prefer an electronic one. If your current planning system isn’t keeping you and your family organized then consider switching to a Joint Family Planner.
In order for our customers to get the best use from our planners, we designed them to have 4 weeks per month. This allows for times when the planner may go without being unused and still be functional. To make up for any extra days or overpopulated sections, we have made specific pages from the planner available for free download.
Family Planning Strategy
A least once a month schedule a meeting with all the parents within your family dynamic. This could be a marriage mate, co-parents including their new life partner or spouse, or an unwed parent. Organize ideas and compromise on protocols and contingencies that will minimize disagreements and maximize communication.
Schedule major events and goals that will impact the parent's relationship with each other, with co-parents and with their children. Include relationships, parents, and financial commitments that need to be scheduled and coordinated throughout the month.
Ideally, every parent should have their own planner. This allows all to synchronize their efforts that were agreed upon at the Parent Meeting. All of the events and goals that were scheduled in the Joint Calendar can be added to your Joint Family Planner.
Plan out your week's activities taking into account the coordinated schedule that was decided in the Joint Calendar. Add to the planner your weekly budget, meals, budgets, expenses, exercise, and activities. Stay in communication with the co-parent(s) to make sure weekly plans that involve the children coincide with their schedule.
Add all activities and events that are within your Joint Family Planner to a Google Calendar. Create a group and share the calendar with everyone in your family dynamic. All co-parents and children will have these activities and events on their devices.
