(I don't have much time or ideas for writing at the moment. But I thought maybe I could share simple tips that I've found helpful on organization, saving money, child rearing and marriage as I love learning new tips. I don't stick to all these, but I go back to them when I need them.)
This is one tip I learned at a parenting course that I use often. When it's almost time for the children to tidy up, turn off a movie, come inside for dinner, go out in the car or whatever, I often tell the children they have a few minutes left. That way they have warning; they're not suddenly told to drop what they're doing as that can cause unnecessary frustration.
