If your child isn’t at daycare or in school, mom is often in charge. And even if your kid isn't in daycare, there's no school on weekends. So that means she needs to be prepared.

Taking care of one or more kids on a regular basis is hard work. If you’re not ready to keep them entertained and interested, you could have a full-blown riot on your hands. That’s why the moms in our survey are masters of playtime, naptime, lunches, sharing, arts and crafts, Play-Doh, story-time and – when necessary – proper discipline.
