The Perfect Morning Routine!

Posted on: August 26, 2010


Parents! School is almost here and all summer your kids were waking up late and sleeping late and there is just no order!

All this has to stop starting today! You have to get your kids back on that morning routine before school starts.

– Starting today have your kids sleep early and wake them up a bit earlier then they usually wake up during holidays.

Gradually do that so your kids won’t  feel really cranky in the morning.

– Reminders: Some kids remember what to do in the morning in a timely fashion but others need reminders like, ” Son don’t forget to brush your teeth.”

– Avoid yelling and harsh treatment. No parent likes sending their child out the door after a screaming match.

– Tack on an additional task. Once the morning schedule becomes routine, you can add an element: throwing dirty clothes in the hamper, making beds, putting together lunches.

Remember your goal: You want your children up and out the door on time, and to move securely through the school day so each can reach her academic potential. Ask yourself how you wish the school year to go, then ask yourself how you can help it happen.
