    What happened to the link to the podcast you did with your husband? I wanted to share it with my husband and take a look at the chart that he created for your kids! Looking forward to implementing a lot of this real soon!

      The podcast you are referencing is “Ideas for Working Together- Episode 56.” You can find it by visiting It has some templates that April and her husband have used in the past. We also just posted the link in the show notes above. Good luck!

    I really love this idea for my 9 year old. The trouble I am having is that I also have a 3 year old. Some of the older child’s goals may need my help, but I am having a hard time figuring out what to do with him while I try to help her. Our schedule also kind of revolves around his mid-day nap. I’d love to hear some ideas from others who have a wide age range between kids.
