These days I feel like an Uber driver! I spend a good portion of the week traveling to and from kids activities. So I wonder as parents, do you put a limit on how many activities your children/child can do in one season?

    My limit for my 8 year old is one activity at a time of his choice (always a sport so far), plus piano lessons (my choice).

      I like the idea of this one choice for a child, one choice for a parent! That is a great idea! And who knows maybe the parent-chosen activity is the one the child will end up liking more than the one they picked.

    I am starting a strict limit now after we had a stretch of three overlapping activities for my older son and it was crazy. I told my kids from now they will be doing only two activities at a time.

    It can get a little hectic with all three kids in multiple activities at once. We limit our kids to two activities at a time. They just get too tired when they are involved in more, and honestly, so do I!

      We have three as well so I hear you! I am still trying to find the balance between overload and letting them explore new sports and activities.

    We are quickly learning that the older our kids get, the more involved the commitment for each activity there is i.e.: a weekly cross country practice will turn to 4 practices and a meet each week this fall. With the more time intensive commitments, we are definitely going to need to limit each child's activity to one or two per season.
