Raising children who are involved in sports can be one of the most enjoyable yet demanding aspects of parenthood. Parents are often left exhausted after washing smelly clothes several times a week, ensuring that their children attend practices, and traveling to games that are sometimes a little farther away than their taste. They accomplish all of their children’s sports needs while also helping them manage school. This is only one example of how busy our lives can be especially when we are caring for others. Well, as in anything involving multiple tasks, organization is a necessity. Fortunately, there are a plethora of resources available at the Birmingham Public Library that can not only help sports parents maintain their sanity and streamline their tasks, but others who are busy in other ways.
