Outsourcing Tasks for More Family Quality Time

Written by Ralph Stokes on . Posted in Family

Time management and multitasking are on everyone lips nowadays, as life gets more crowded, fast and complicated. In a globalized world, competition is fiercer, and you have to dedicate a lot of time to your job or career to stay up ahead. In most cases, this also interferes with family life, especially if you have to deal with household chores as well. Whether a mother or a father, spending time with your family becomes more challenging with every new problem, not to mention this eats away at some personal free time as well. Thus, in a capitalist system that most of us live in, it makes complete sense to outsource tasks in order to gain back some free time.

We sell most our day time for a bigger salary, so by outsourcing some of our other responsibilities, we keep the economy going, create working opportunities for others and gain back some of that free time for our families. If this situation describes your life exactly, then you need to think about what you could eliminate from your responsibilities’ list. In what follows we are going to give you a few examples, which may fit your exact situation, or might inspire you to determine what isn’t totally necessary that you do. For example, whether a man or a woman, you can save time by no longer trying to fix any home appliances yourself; even if you have a knack for washing machines and toasters, it may take you a lot more time to repair them than a professional.

Thus, one of the most logical tasks you can outsource is appliance maintenance, and you can hire a home appliance service to do so in no-time, and definitely better than you. Household chores can also become a way of spending quality time together as a family, so you can outsource some of them as well; whether the garden needs a do-over, the doors need painting, or you want to cook lunch, everyone can become part of the process. You can find different ideas and inspirations to make even these chores fun for the children to enjoy as well, such as letting them plant whatever veggies they want, or letting them choose the paint color for the doors.

When outsourcing chores to your children, make sure that they are age appropriate. For example, using the lawn mower is not a task for a small child. However, if you child is over 11-12 years old, you can entrust him with this chore, as long as you instruct them on the proper way of using the lawn mower in a safe manner. If you have an older lawn mower which keeps getting clogged, you might want to upgrade to a newer model as unclogging the mower is quite a dangerous task.

Although most household chores are indeed too boring, difficult or dangerous for children, some can be used as opportunities for bonding and even teaching. Most fathers can’t wait to teach their sons about cars or showing them how to be handy with a tool; with the appropriate attitude and good inspiration, you can get anyone interested in these things, and you might be surprised to discover that it’s your daughter who’s interested in cars and how they work. In conclusion, it’s all about being honest about what you can handle and what you can’t; as a parent, it is your duty to feel at least content with your life and be well rested, so you can offer your children the full support they need.
