Before Bed – again, routine is essential. Have your child lay out his/her clothes for the next day. Have your child pack his/her lunch (if they will be packing lunch for the next day at school) before going to bed and put it in the refrigerator. Make sure your child has put his/her backpack by the door with all the necessary items for the next day at school (i.e. homework, library books, musical instrument, etc.).
During the colder months, make sure your child has a coat and other outer wear appropriate for the weather next to the backpack.
Your child should also lay out the clothes that he/she will wear to school the next day (this will save time in the morning).
