Grantmamas, a social learning company, published the eBook, "Are You Controlling Your Family’s Schedule, or Is It Controlling You?" to take a hard look at three questions parents ask themselves:

1. Are we overscheduling our children? How much is too much?
2. What tools can help our family better organize our schedules and lives?
3. What can we do to make family time together more enjoyable?

“So many parents feel guilty because they can’t seem to find enough quality time to spend with their children. They’re frustrated because they feel like their schedules are controlling them, instead of them controlling their schedules,” said Toni Rockis, co-founder of Grantmamas. “Additionally, a lot of parents are concerned that they’re overscheduling their children. This eBook provides a ton of very practical information and easy-to-use tools to help parents address these challenging issues.”
