Now that it’s back to school time, parents’ brains need to get back in track as well, especially when it comes to all of the am rush details. To help ease the morning pre-school bus chaos, think ahead the night before to where can you lighten the load. Set the breakfast table as you clear the dinner dishes, and make sure breakfast foods are easy to reach. Lay out children’s clothing the night before. Scan backpacks for missing homework, projects or books. Make sure musical instruments or sports bags are packed and ready to go. Create a checklist for older kids to go through every night so they can be prepped for the morning and will learn to be responsible for their own stuff.
