Working Moms

How can I make mornings go more smoothly?

Follow the same consistent schedule each day if possible. This will help your children know what to expect.

Get up at least 1 hour before your kids do to exercise or have a quiet prayer time and a cup of coffee.

Get dressed before your kids wake up.

Have your children help set out their clothes the night before so there’s no arguing about what to wear.

Prepare lunches and backpacks the night before.

Let children do as much as they can by themselves—get dressed, brush their hair etc. This will help them feel independent while giving you free time to do other things.

Keep breakfast simple and portable and healthy when you can.
