How to Use a Doctor's Appointment to Make More Time For FunWe all have moments during the day when we are stuck in a place, or traveling, with nothing to do but sit there. In other words, committed time.
Take a typical week and add up the time that your teenager spends:
How much time did that add up to? Now imagine all that extra time is time they could spend doing something they love – discuss it with them, how does it make them feel? Annoyed? Cheated?
Get them to claim back that committed time and use it on activities that they would be doing anyway at a later time.
To make this happen, help your teen to gather things together that they can do in short bursts and keep a folder handy at all times so they can use those odd moments. Photocopy pages from books they need to read so the whole book doesn’t have to come along.
Using committed time productively means your teenager will have to spend less time on working and studying later, leaving more time to have fun.
So, next time your teenager has a doctors appointment, how will they spend their time in the waiting room?
