About Us

We’re the Norton Family. More specifically, the Norton Family Team. Aren’t we creative? 😉 There are six of us – the parental units, and four kids under ten. Even though I’ll be carrying the brunt of the blog-posting and book-writing here, you’ll find occasional guest posts from my four chore victims (I’m sure they’d willingly agree to that name) and my usually willing accomplice. This is, after all, a family affair. I wouldn’t be true to myself or true to the name I’ve chosen of “Time Well Spent” if I didn’t try to find ways to include my four kids in this new online family adventure. Sigh.

So, why are we here? Well, after about six years of trial and error we’ve finally developed our own little chore system that’s been paying out bigger dividends than we ever expected in the clean house and independent children department.

Bottom line is that we’re here to share it. And every moment in between.

So click around our family blog and read through what ideas, successes, and failures we experience while in the “raising confident, independent, financially responsible children” trench. If you’re looking for a way to use household chores and life skills to develop the above qualities in your own children, then check out our new book. You won’t be disappointed. 
I can promise you that although some of the things we do take that precious thing called “time,” you can rest assured that the time you invest in teaching and working alongside your kids will be (here it comes– the cheesy but perfect ending to this page)…Time Well Spent. I had to. Sorry.
