It’s late January, and the outside temperature at 6:30 this morning was in the 30s. Our thermostat inside says the house is 71 degrees, but even I didn’t think that getting out from under the covers sounded like a good idea this morning. My kids? They had zero interest in getting up, getting ready, and going outside to go to school. Mornings are such a hard sell, especially on school days, especially when it’s cold & dark, especially when we didn’t go to bed on time the night before. Just, yuck.
My clients often talk about the stress they feel related to getting out the door on time on weekdays. There is so much that needs to be done, the timeline is usually tight, it’s a “pinch point” in a family’s day that often leads to stress, conflict, and bad feelings. (not to mention tardy slips.)
There are a few really effective and good-feeling tools at improving this daily routine that I’ve discovered over the years, and I’d like to share them with you. This short webinar offers parenting hacks for getting your kids awake, up, moving, and out the door… with 57% less* unhappiness.
