One way to improve time management and productivity is to delegate some tasks to others to free up your own time and resources. I often work with busy parents to help organize their homes and schedules. One common errand parents need to think about is carpooling their children to and from school and after-school activities such as soccer practice, dance lessons, or swim lessons.
Parents can often trade this task off with family, friends or neighbors, but when those people are not available there are now helpful alternatives. Although you may consider using Uber or Lyft, those companies do not transport people under 18 without a parent present.
For safety, and your own peace of mind, there are car service companies for transporting children to and from school and activities now available in many locations. In the Raleigh and Cary area, here are a few options:
With companies like these, the drivers have been background checked, and safety is of the utmost importance. You can schedule pick-up and drop-off times in advance, and in some cases even request the same driver. If you live outside the Raleigh, NC area, search online to see if there are child transportation services like these available near you.
Although we’d all like to be there for our children at all times, sometimes schedules conflict, so it is wonderful that companies like these exist. Delegating transportation can be a huge time saver and help families to balance their busy schedules.
