"Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance" for our children's success in the school year so let's get the 6 most important things planned for an easy start to the school year.
1. School Supplies
2. Morning bathroom rush hour schedule
If your children share a bathroom the morning rush hour during the school year to use the bathroom may be your first issue of the morning. Speak on the situation before it becomes an issue. Set a morning schedule up for each child to use the bathroom for pre school preparation, especially if you have a boy and a girl sharing the same bathroom. I suggest allowing the boys to prep first since we all know that young ladies usually have more hair and longer routines. This time schedule can also be used for bathroom cleaning assignments. Make each child accountable for cleaning the bathroom on certain days so that everyone is involved in the clean up process
B. Time Glass
Another great idea is a time glass. This is great use also for small children when sharing bathrooms together. They can all have one and that time glass gives them their own personalized time to utilize each sink for brushing teeth. It again can also be used for cleaning times in the bathrooms. The main point of cleaning the bathroom is disinfecting. Leave a bottle of mixed vinegar/Water/TeaTreeOil in the bathroom as a non toxic cleaner for each child to use to disinfect the bathroom on their assigned scheduled day.
3. Everyone works better in a clean room
4. Family Calendar
5. Gas up the cars!
It's always better to get gas at night because as hot as it is in the summer
