Children


Little kids, like my 2-year-old and 4-year-old, have little concept of time and move at a much slower pace than most adults. One obvious reason for this is that their developing brains make them curious and inquisitive about all the new things they're encountering in the world. This necessarily slow-paced process of exploration and discovery can really slow you down when you're trying to get to work, school, or anywhere else on time. So how do you balance their developmental need to "doddle" when you're a super-busy parent trying to juggle work, kids, and all the other obligations on your calendar?
