Protected: Stress free morning

This content is password protected. To view it please enter your password below:

Prepare

Do as much as possible the night before (Shower, PE kit, packed lunch, uniform ready, homework ready).

Time

Make sure you have plenty of time, get everybody up in good time and leave 5 minutes earlier than you need to.

Routine

Use a planner/tick list/chalkboard and establish set routines. Find a free planner link here.

Rules

No computers, phones, tablets, TV, electronics, screen time until dressed, breakfast eaten, teeth cleaned, ready for school.

Positivity

Stay positive and use positive language and encouragement to start the day off well and with a smile.

Fun

Make mornings fun: have music playing (create a playlist that everybody likes).

Breakfast

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.

Praise

Offer incentives/rewards for calm mornings and doing tasks themselves (getting dressed/brushing teeth/wash face).
