    This Week: My family is struggling with trying to create balance between work, children’s activities, personal time and running the household. Sometimes the tension runs pretty high because we can’t seem to keep our heads above water. We both have demanding jobs and three active children, ages 16, 13 and 5. Plus, we each have our hobbies and interests. Where do we begin with trying to bring some stability to our family?
