3 Easiest Ways to Simplify Your Mornings as a Parent with Young Learners

 

Whatever your parent + student routine, mornings can get pretty chaotic and just one thing going wrong can throw off your entire day (and make everyone extra cranky pants.) I’m not claiming you’ll never have a crazy morning again, because let’s be real here, #parentlife. BUT I do have a few tips on surviving them and making your morning student routine a little easier! (Don’t forget to leave me some of your morning parent hacks in the comments below!)

Prepare the Night Before

Prepare EVERYTHING the night before. Prepare lunches for the next day right after dinner. That way you don’t have to clean up twice and it’s out of the way.  Get everyone’s outfits for the next day ready and place them wherever your kids get ready in the morning. Right after breakfast they can get dressed and you’re not running around like a crazy person looking for socks or the other shoe.  We once did all that when we were attending an actual physical school, but now that we homeschool we don’t have to race out of the house.  The more organized you are ahead of time, the easier your mornings will be. It’s worth preparing, so don’t wait!

Get Up Before the Kids.

I know you might get up pretty early already but having that extra time before the kids wake up does wonders. There’s just something wonderful about getting up before everyone else in the house. It’s so quiet and peaceful and will give you some time to collect your thoughts before the craziness of the day starts. Did I mention it’s quiet? Make a coffee, drink it hot, watch the news, grab some breakfast, all in silence. You will see your mornings run smoother by doing this. (Even on weekends!)

Don’t Hit Snooze.

That snooze button is tempting – especially when you’re a worn-out parent but the sooner you get up, the better. Hitting snooze too many times will make you feel even more tired and sluggish. So get up and go grab that HOT coffee or hot chocolate, while you can.
