Today’s Parenting Tip:
This Parenting Tip is a reminder about things you can do to help your child get a good start at school this year.
A morning plan can make everything run much more smoothly on school days.
- Ask your child in what order he will do things (dress, eat, etc.).
- Make sure your child has his own alarm for getting up in the morning, if he is old enough. Agree ahead of time about what you will do to get him up, if he doesn’t get up with the alarm. (Will you come into his room? How many times?)
- Make a plan that is for each child individually.
- Make a poster that describes the plan. Use pictures for a young child.
