|Create a "launchpad" by the door so you don't|
forget what you need for the day!
Before Breakfast Routine
Get dressed to the shoes.
Have a brief devotional.
(Homeschooling moms: Your need for a routine doesn't stop here. Be sure you have a plan in place for your daily school time.)
After School Routine
Decide with your child on a homework schedule. Some children are refreshed with a snack and some outside playtime before tackling their assignments. Set a timer to challenge reluctant scholars to stay focused and “beat the clock!”
Check calendar for tomorrow’s activities.
Lay out next day’s clothes.
Routines don't have to be hard. They are simply habits that you put in place to make your life EASIER. Yes, easier! You already have habits in place now...are they making your life easier or more difficult? Ask yourself the hard questions, and be ready to do whatever it takes to turn things around. I believe you can do it! Believe in yourself and then there will be two of us! :)
