Getting into routines
One of the challenges of shifting from summer to fall schedules is getting back into those school day routines, especially waking up early to start the day!
So to get you going in the right direction for earlier mornings, start at bedtime!
Beginning tomorrow, let your kids know that their bedtime routines will need to start 10 to 15 minutes earlier each night. A 10 or 15 minute earlier start will allow kids to adjust to the expectation of needing to go to bed earlier and will help move them in the right direction and to be rested even when they have to wake up early.
With start-of-school still being two weeks away, it allows some wiggle room to have a couple of late nights in between and not have it be as drastic a change the weekend before school starts!
