Help Your Family Grow with Me in a Tree
Written by Role Mommy contributor, Danielle Feigenbaum.
Everyone is so busy busy busy. Whether you are working out of the house, in the house, have one kid or six - life is busy. Wouldn't it be great to have a place online to help organize your busy life in a fun way? Now there is! Recently launched, Me in a Tree, is a new online organizational and communicating tool created to build stronger families. It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life, this site can help you get organized, stay connected and have fun together! It's being called, the #1 communication building tool for families and I know you will agree.
Once you sign up (there is a free 2 week membership) it costs $5.99 per month for a year membership. The company gives back 10% of its profits to family and child centered non-profit organizations that share the company's philosophy and work and share in the common goal of growing and maintaining a united family. The first thing you do once you are registered, is create an avatar for each member of the family. It's a fun process that the whole family can be involved in. We had some laughs choosing the hair, face and clothes for each of us. Then you create each members' profile.
There are so many wonderful videos to help you understand the website and everything it can offer your family. I suggest watching them first and then you can get started! They offer parent support, a calendar so you can keep everyone's schedule straight, "my duties" section to help teach responsibility and so much more.
As busy as life gets, it is so important to take a minute and reflect on how we are doing and what we are grateful for. You can do this once a day or once a week in the journal section of the site. That can also become something nice to look back on as your kids grow. I always feel better when I get things off my chest and write them down. One of my favorite parts of Me in a Tree is the "family huddle". Do you feel disconnected from your kids? Do they love to give you one word answers? Do you wonder what is actually going on in their lives? What about your spouse? I find that my husband and I only talk about schedules and finances and by the end of the day we both collapse on the couch and watch TV, too tired to talk at all. The family huddle only takes about 30 minutes and you know you can always squeeze in 30 minutes. Pick the same time each week and make it a priority. Communication is an important way to stay connected.
Don't just take my word for it, check it out for yourself... Me in a Tree. Before you know it, you will be more organized and more connected with your family. You, your spouse and your kids will have fun and love it.
