Back to school: kids' morning routines

Setting up daily, weekly, monthly and yearly routines is one of the best ways you can get yourself organized. It creates habits around the tasks that you need to do to keep on track and on time each day.

We all know that kids thrive on routines as well so it's a good idea to set up a morning routine for them early in the year to avoid hectic mornings and being late to school every day.

Turn getting ready for school into a habit that your kids will be able to do each day without your help (or very little anyway!).

Kids love a checklist just as much as we do and even the littlest of school kids can go through the pictures one by one each morning to get ready for preschool or school. They'll love the feeling of being very grown up too.

And until they're old enough to tell the time, you can keep an eye on the clock and let them know if they're lagging behind.

If you tell them that once they've done everything on the list, they can play, you may find that they're ready well ahead of time. No more frantic mornings!
