Parenting Tip #380 – Keeping Notes

keeping notes parenting advice #380

I have an awful memory. My adult ADHD is partially to blame but I’m an adult and I can’t pass the buck. There aren’t many ways to trick the brain but there are ways to keep it from making life difficult.

Taking notes is one way. I suggest it even for people with insane recollections.

It’s important to keep notes on your kids. Not the kind of parenting notes I write, actual notes. I don’t do this enough.

If I just wrote down their friend’s names, the games they’re into, the food they like and hate, and other little minor but noteworthy answers, I can stop asking the same old questions.

I’ll have to make a note to keep more notes. Let’s see how that works out.
