Love & Logic Parenting Tips How to Make Mornings Easier loveandlogic.com
Getting your children up, dressed, fed and ready to walk out the door in the morning can be quite the challenge. Listed below are some tips and tricks to take the mayhem out of the morning routine.
Have “practice” mornings when you’re not under pressure or in a rush to be somewhere. Weekends tend to be great times to do this.
Make a guide or chart for them. You can take pictures of them doing all the things they need to do in the morning and then post it somewhere they can refer to.
Set limits with enforceable statements. Examples: “Breakfast will be on the table until the big hand is on the 12.” “I give treats to kids who brush their teeth.” “The car will be leaving soon. Will you be leaving with your clothes on your body or in a bag?”
Enforce these limits with plenty of loving empathy. This may mean taking your child to preschool in their pajamas or by expecting them to pay you for taking them to school when they are late. Tip: If you think you may need to take your child to school with their clothes in a bag, call the school and let them know ahead of time.
