It’s amazing what can be accomplished in five minutes. When your child is feeling particularly overwhelmed, check his to do list, and point out one task that will only take five minutes. Set the timer, and watch the relief as one item can be crossed off as finished.

This hint also works great for parents. If you have a small task you’ve been dreading or putting off – like washing a window or writing a thank you note – set the timer for five minutes and get it over with!
