MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!
MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Springing forward this weekend
So what can a parent do to help their children stay on scheduale?
1. Start moving bedtime up immediately. Move it up 10-15 minutes every night until Sunday. For example, if you normally start your bedtime routine at 7pm, move it up to 6:50pm.
2. Keep your bedtime routine consistent.
3. If your child is old enough to tell time, explain the time change.
While these tips may not fix the confussion in a small childs mind as to why it is 9 and not 8, it will help you keep you routine in the long run. And if your a working parent, getting out the door on time is very important.
