Painless Mornings

Updated: Aug 23, 2018

The biggest improvement to my mornings has been instituting a tip from my kid’s pre-school: Have them do what you want them to do before they get to do what they want to do

Here it is in action: Normally, we put on an episode of TV for the kids while we get ready in the morning. My kids love it. (Probably too much, but that is a topic for another post.). 

Our new rule: no TV until you are completely dressed. This has transformed our mornings.  Instead of having to fight my 4 year old daughter to get dressed for ten to fifteen minutes every morning, she shows up fully dressed in our bedroom at 6:30am.  

Score! (Now we just need to fix the 6:30am wake-up time.)

Let us know how it works for you!

Learn the parenting style that suits you and your offspring best as the parental guidance you provide to your child is crucial.
