Monday morning madness...

Any other parents find Monday mornings stressful? Getting kids ready for school is a workout on any morning, but Mondays (especially after a great weekend) are just so tough…

What has worked for us is using access to screen time as an advantage.

We set the stage the evening before by limiting screen time - all electronic use has to stop at 7pm. Then the kids are allowed to do as much as they want first thing in the morning during the week IF they are school ready (dressed, teeth brushed, breakfast and their lunches are made). 

This solved many problems, including managing screen time access, getting them to bed early and being on time for school! 

Any tips you can share?
