Tips for parents:  The days never seem to go exactly as planned with young children, but it’s helpful for both of you to have a general schedule for the day.  Naps and moods will improve tremendously, and you’re likely to have fewer outbursts to deal with.  Of course, one predictable weekly activity that we highly recommend is… Kindermusik!
