Why is it that when it comes to getting organized, nearly all of us feel like we’re failing? Maybe it’s the incessant images of ‘org porn’ that we see at every turn that lead us to hold ourselves to an unattainable standard, or perhaps it’s the bevy of experts telling us everything that we should be doing to get perfectly organized. Whatever the cause, nearly everyone, no matter how successful, is pretty sure they’re falling short of the mark. In their show, dynamic duo Alicia Rockmore & Sarah Welch, co-founders of GetButtonedUp.com, will shed light on this topic – looking at why it makes us so nuts and highlighting simple solutions that help busy people get organized enough to lead the rich, full lives they deserve.

    Get Buttoned Up – Organize a Free Range Summer

    Get Buttoned Up – Organize a Free Range Summer

    This year, take back your children’s summer vacation, force yourself to be a little less structured, and figure out how to schedule in an adequate amount of free play.

    Today, Sarah & Alicia discuss the importance of slowing down this summer and help you get organized in a way that enables you (& your family) to be more free-form for the next few months.

    Studies have shown that unstructured, creative play is crucial for optimal child development. Play is so important to optimal child development that it has even been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child. Unfortunately, many children are being raised in an increasingly hurried and pressured style by well-intentioned parents that may limit the protective benefits they would gain from child-driven play. Listen in as the Get Buttoned Up co-hosts sit down with Lenore Skenazy, author of Free Range Kids (http://freerangekids.wordpress.com/). She’s dedicated to waking modern parents up to the importance of letting kids be, well, kids.

    In addition, Alicia and Sarah share their own “worst summers ever” – summers where they didn’t slow down and regret it to this day – in the hopes that you don’t make the same mistakes they did.

    Their challenge will have you clearing the decks and setting yourself up for a truly relaxing summer. The fact is, it does take some organization to ensure you have blocked off enough down time.

    This show will get you ready to truly relax and make the most out of your summer. Don’t miss it.
