Do as much as possible the night before (Shower, PE kit, packed lunch, uniform ready, homework ready).
Make sure you have plenty of time, get everybody up in good time and leave 5 minutes earlier than you need to.
Use a planner/tick list/chalkboard and establish set routines. Find a free planner link here.
No computers, phones, tablets, TV, electronics, screen time until dressed, breakfast eaten, teeth cleaned, ready for school.
Stay positive and use positive language and encouragement to start the day off well and with a smile.
Make mornings fun: have music playing (create a playlist that everybody likes).
Keep breakfast simple. Lay things out the night before and allow children to help themselves if old enough: why not try our recipes link here.
Offer incentives/rewards for calm mornings and doing tasks themselves (getting dressed/brushing teeth/wash face).
