If your house is anything like ours in the morning, then you are probably ready for a nap after school drop offs! I fully believe in kids learning how to self motivate and learn responsibility. This checklist is how we handle mornings now. It is up to the kids to finish their things in time to sit down for breakfast. If they are not ready in time, they will have to grab a granola bar on the way out the door (which is not ideal!) As much as I hate for them to not have a good breakfast, I have learned that I cannot give up our ability to get to school on time. This has worked very well for us!
And, the best part, it’s EDITABLE! That’s right, your chaos coordinator has learned a new trick! You can download, edit, and print a list that works for your family!
Please let me know if you try this and how it works for you and your kids!
