Estimate a Project's Required Completion Time

Follow these steps for completing a major project with your tween. Take a peek at the project together. Ask your child to guess how many steps will be involved and to write down a time estimate for each step. Add an hour as a cushion in case the markers run dry or she gets stuck. Finally, look at the following week's schedule together and fit the project in. This way, the work will get done and sleep won't have to be compromised to do it.
