A boy discovers he is a wizard Harry Potter.
I know this is an important topic for you but we have left out the main person that has to get the children ready for the first day of school; YOU!
You are the one who has to get up and get the family moving each morning. It is your responsibility to make sure they go to bed and get the rest they need to have a productive day. No one really had a bed time or their alarm set for morning.
Then when it came to mealtime; everyone just ate whatever they could find when they got hungry. What happened to the structure in our day? What happened to our routines? If we are going to expect our children to jump on the routine bandwagon then we better be there leading the way; not just barking the orders.
We teach best by our example. Not just a simple do as I do, but an example that is set in love and from the heart. If you are not taking care of yourself; you are not going to be able to take care of your family and show them the value of routines.
Most of our lives we have run around putting out fires just to stay on top of housework, bills, jobs and the responsibilities of parenting. If you are a born organized person these things do not take a toll on you, but if you tend to get sidetracked then you know about putting out fires.
A born organized person just gets things done and the people around them do not even know that it has been done. If you were raised by a born organized person you have experienced this for yourself when you got your own place. Who knew that it was cleaned on a regular basis?
If you are this born organized person I am not putting you down. So when you tell them to go clean the bathroom or their bedroom they have no clue.
Mainly because it was just easier for you to do it yourself than to show them that there actually is a routine to housecleaning and most things in life.
We can learn to be organized. Taking the methods that a born organized person does naturally and using them to help us gain control over our homes and lives and in the end give our children the tools to go out into the world on their own.
I have watched the people in my life that are born organized and what I have noticed is they tend to do the same thing in the same order every single morning. At first I thought that must be so boring and then I realized that it was brilliant.
The brilliance comes from having the mundane things in life taken care of so you can have fun. We love fun and most of the time we are having fun; except when we are beating ourselves up because the kids are late to school again because you over-slept.
It is time for us to go to school and learn something that will help us enjoy life without the guilt we place on ourselves. I am going to call it FLYing School.
We will start our first lesson with our before bed routine. Without a before bed routine; you are running around the house in the morning in a panic.
This is when we forget things. Your before bed routine helps you to start your morning on a calm step. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow. Even if you have to do a load of laundry to accomplish this at first; it is better than having to deal with it in the morning when everyone is rushing around.
When you lay out your clothes, your children are going to see you doing it. Now here is the fun part and we love to make things fun. Set your timer and make a game out of it. Think about what you have to have when you walk out the door in the morning.
Establish a launch pad by your front door. This can be as simple as a coat hook or table. If you have several children; one lady put an old dresser base in their entrance and each child had a drawer to put their items for the next day.
If you set this example your children are going to use it too; with a little suggestion from you. Go to bed at a decent hour. This is the most important part of a before bed routine; start thinking about it long before your actual bedtime.
Mine starts right after dinner with a bath. Establish a bedtime for everyone in the house and this includes you.May 26, · Before this time, I was a good kid. Beating up that kid made me learn a lesson and that’s that everybody makes mistakes.
