Hi. I know most families are returning back-to-school this week in NJ. Many families across the country have already returned to school. I wish you and your family great success in your journey back to school routines. We have our back-to-school night tonight for my son in middle school. This week has been a bit crazy and I suspect the same is for you.
One great idea that I implement every year around this time is a clipboard with a morning routine/list attached. For example, my children each have their own checklist with all their essential "to do’s" before walking out the door for school. The list may contain items such as: brush teeth, pack lunch, pack cell phone, remember wallet, got a house key?, remember some water, jacket with hood, etc. Both my kids checks off as they progress through their lists which helps alleviate the morning chaos. I literally hang up the checklists on the clipboards – right in my kitchen! To get your own copy in word format, just click here and then choose to save the document to your computer.
