Mornings can be stressful. In the rush to get out the door, there may be tempers lost, meltdowns, and the occasional forgotten supply of diapers or a permission slip. There are several things you can do to make your mornings run more smoothly, though, and get you all out the door and to daycare and work on time.
If your child has reached that age (it’s different for each child, but you’ll know when you reach it) when getting them dressed is….a challenge, offer them options. Pick out two shirts and ask them which they’d like to wear. Offer pants or shorts. Giving children options gives them a feeling of autonomy.
