Are school mornings a mad rush trying to get your kids out of the house on time? We give you tips on getting the kiddos ready for school in a flash!
Why do school mornings have to be so chaotic?
School mornings usually involve Mummy running from room to room trying to wake up her kids. The little ones then stagger around half-asleep, looking for missing socks, toothbrushes and school-bags. Every 5 minutes Mummy yells, "Get ready for school, or else..."
With a toddler clinging to her legs, Mummy proceeds to pack lunches, feed the dog and herd everyone out of the house. If Mummy's lucky, Daddy helps. If she's not so lucky, Daddy is nowhere to be seen. It's a miracle if she can have them dressed, fed and in the car at a decent time!
All you mums know how being late even by 5 minutes can make a huge difference to the rest of the day. Little things like teaching your child to get dressed by herself or waking up without being nagged can help immensely in getting out of the house on time.
So how do you achieve speedy school mornings and help your kids get ready for school, without feeling like a wreck by 9am?
