LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -When do those dance classes or football practices become too much, and how do you, as a parent, find a healthy balance for your family?
In tonight's 'Beyond the Books,' we ask scheduling experts for answers.
Lisa Jones is a busy mom to three very busy children. 11-year-old Teddy, 9-year-old Emmy, and 6-year-old Will.
Besides school, Jones sees to it that this bunch is exposed to multiple activities, "mostly sports and it's usually Monday through Thursday."
"Our daughter does cheerleading and school choir and tennis and gymnastics," said Jones.
It all makes for a schedule that could quickly become overwhelming.
"I don't have the answers, like I said we sort of figure it out as we go."
Sharon Long, a counselor with Centers for Youth and Families says each family is different. And the key is finding the right balance.
