Getting the kids ready for school in the morning is a daunting task. Unless you have a house of merry morning people, it is hard to wake up early and quickly get ready for school. Often the morning routine is filled with rushing and yelling – not an ideal way to begin the day.
Kudo Banz can help kids develop good morning routine habits. It is important to break things down into simple steps (see suggestions below). Pick steps in the morning routine that are a challenge for your child. Maybe it is getting out of bed without mom/dad asking multiple times, eating breakfast in a timely manner or packing everything in their backpack. Discuss with your child that when they do these things successfully they will earn a Kudo. The key is to keep things positive. There will always be bumps in our mornings but our job as parents is to focus on the good things our children are doing (vs the negative) and give them praise for those things.
KUDO STEP SUGGESTIONS:
- Get out of bed on time

* Post a simple list of morning steps to help kids know what needs to be accomplished.
