Time Management Tips For Kids

It’s time to teach your kids all about time management. Let’s get started.

Encourage Self Talk

It’s so important to regularly check on your progress no matter what you’re working on. The thing is, kids don’t always know where to start.

These three reflection questions may be able to help…

1) Am I on track?

2) What do I need to do before getting started?

3) Am I halfway done?

Use a Timer

Here’s an activity you can do with your child.

Have them estimate how long something will take to complete.

Then, go ahead and time them completing the task. This can be anything from homework to making their bed.

The results may surprise both of you.


Mastering time management as a child or adult definitely doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of practice.

The good news is, the more you practice the better you get.
