Building an Effective Morning Routine

Mornings are not easy when you have young children, finding their shoes, getting them dressed and trying to get them to eat a healthy breakfast is all easier said than done. But an effective morning routine can set you and your family up for success.

Get enough sleep

Try to make sure your little ones are going to bed early to get all the sleep they need, and taking naps in the day when possible. If they’re freshly rested, mornings should be even easier.

3 - 6 years old = 10-12 hours

7 - 11 years old = 10-11 hours

Have some snuggle time

Try to fit in 5-10 minutes of snuggles before it’s time to start getting ready. This can help to put everyone in a good mood and start the day in a relaxing way, instead of with orders, demands or stress.
