Back to School
Back to school, in January? No I haven't lost my mind. As many of us mom's are making some fresh starts in January, why not revisit some of the routines for our kids too? August can be a whirl wind of getting ready for a new school year and not a lot of head space for proactive planning.
Why not take a few minutes this January to think about your kids' routines. What is working well. What seems to be driving you or them crazy pretty often. Are there some steps you can put in place to let them know expectations or not repeat yourself so often?
Here are a couple check lists I put together to make getting out the door and coming back home easier.
No system is perfect. I still hear, "I didn't know". At least I am not repeating the same instructions every day. I just remind them to consult the check list and off they go.
