Looking to reduce your stress in the morning and have your children be more independent? Our free printable Morning Routine Checklist can help!
Are mornings hectic at your house? Are you constantly reminding your kids to do the same things over and over?
“Honey, brush your teeth?”
“Did you make your bed?”
“Why aren’t you dressed yet?!”
“We’re going to be LATE!”
If this feels all too familiar, you’re not alone. Unlike adults, kids have yet to establish strong natural routines when they wake up. So what feels like clockwork to you (get up, go to the bathroom, brush teeth, get dressed, make bed, have breakfast, etc.) isn’t yet ingrained into your child’s “muscle” memory.
While you could do a lot of hand holding, nagging (see above), and giving instructions, we found there’s a better way to help your children establish a strong morning routine.
We’ve partnered with ForaCare, the healthcare technology specialists (and maker of our favorite IR42 thermometer…more on this later!), to bring you the easy solution: our printable Morning Routine Chart.
This free checklist is completely customizable to your desired daily routine, and visually shows your child what tasks they need to do next.
So instead of waking up and wondering, “what do I do now?”, your kids can easily stay on track, and work towards independently completing their chart. This will not only boost your child’s confidence and give them a sense of accomplishment, but will lessen the overall stress level of your mornings, and help everyone get out the door on time. High five to that!
