Mom Tips to Get Out the Door Fast in the Mornings
Here are some positive solutions to get you out the door quickly
When this happens, it may be a sign that your child is having a bad day or difficult time. Your best bet is to recognize his feelings and tell him that although you guys have to get ready to go right now, you can tell him that you will discuss it tonight over ice cream so he doesn’t feel the same way tomorrow.
If you push your child too hard, she may stall even more. Instead, try to connect and offer encouraging words like “I think you need a super-sized hug to give you some energy this morning!”
Refusing to get dressed.
Try to trigger autonomy by saying something like “You can’t put your jacket on by yourself, can you? Wow, really? Look at you!”
Some ideas for rewarding good behavior from Real Mom’s
"My son is not a morning person. So when he is not Mr. Cranky Pants when he wakes up, he gets a cuddle session with me and then peanut butter on toast in bed for breakfast I reward my child with extra hugs and silliness! And I tell him how much I appreciate him getting ready so quickly. I want him to be proud of himself as well".
"My daughters can sometimes enter into sibling rivalry mode in the morning, which drives me crazy. But if they show good behavior, I let each of them pick a treat to bring to school that they can have during lunchtime".

“Using your Benefits link made it easy to select from a wide range of health insurance offerings and narrow down the various plans available that best fit my needs. Being able to make a side by side comparison of the details further helped me make an informed decision on a plan with great rates. The application is swift and uncomplicated”
