Ask them if there was anything wrong first. Are they being bullied? Do they like school? If no, give them an incentive. My boy gets 10 mins on the xbox if they're washed, dressed, had breakfast and brushed their teeth. In record time they do their stuff !!!!
What is her favourate thing to do? Her fav toy? Does she have a show on TV that she likes? You could tape it and let her watch a bit? (Don't ever use food or money - don't go there).
chill out and wait while they get dressed....it can't take forever.
it can, a being late to school daily is extremely irresponsible and disruptive
no kids right?? LMAO x 10
you will be !...:))
Get the kid up earlier so they can get ready in their slower time. Tell them if they want to sleep later, they have to get ready faster.
Yes I know that means YOU have to get up earlier too, but it will be worth it in the long run if you stick to it without wavering.
get her up early again, and when she gets ready quickly, spend some time just talking with her then
five kids and they still have morning issues... it is impossible to solve this problem
I would have them prepare all their clothes, backpacks, and lunches the night before when they are getting ready for bed. There will be no excuses when they get up because everything will be laid out for them.
i agree with babs...they sure can stuff about with other things. get them more organized at night..eg clothes, lunch boxes, swimming gear, shoes etc. I made the mistake of giving the first one out and ready at the door a treat...they started to sabotage each other...now i simply take 5 mins off their bed time after they've had a warning...and so on..if they keep dragging their feet.
don't worry........that was my daughter........she finally met her match.........a teacher that blasted her everytime she came late........21 now...finished school.........& a high salary job.........she's not late anymore
you need a drill sergeant.......still don't worry.......as long as you instill the values of education she'll smarten up.......keep pluggin away ;-)
Help him, he might just be tired or not a morning person and that's not his fault.
Plan out everything the night before- clothes laid out, sox and shoes where they can be found, backpack with all papers signed and packed, lunch packed, breakfast good to go- toaster/box of cereal etc easily accessible- coat on the back of the chair: Just add child- off to the bus
Then she is mismanaging her time- what do you observe?
Then everything is NOT sorted out the night before- there is still all this negotiating and arguing the morning of. The night before all the choices are made- write them down- she signs the paper. Next day what is writtn is FINAL-Sketchers. PERIOD. Egg sandwich PERIOD. How old is she with tantrums? Write a time line: Teeth by __:00; hair by --:00- she is bound by it or you take away TV; phone; computer- and let her have her tantrums. You have a brat in the making, This will only get worse
babz is correct...you need to toughen up and be consistent..you've being walked over...and she's coming back to stomp on you..Sort her now ..take no prisoners...this advice comes from Sargent Major Tgilly
I wouldn't mess with the Tgilly General- FYI I raised 5- my youngest is 11- has his own alarm- gets his act together and is out the door 7:30- my oldest home is 17- does the same ans drive himself to school- 2 daughters are off at college and oldest son in the army
Are we still on this?
i would be very happy
have patience, he won't be that small for ever!!
Get him up even earlier.
