Popkin-Brogna Morning Routine for Kids !

Posted: May 16, 2019

It’s hard to deny that the morning sets the picture, attitude, and essence for the entire day. If you wake up and immediately stub your toe, spill your coffee, and leave your house late, you’re going to have a bad day. That’s why the morning hours are so important, especially if you want to set a tone that is going to carry you throughout a productive and positive day.

Although we might be talking about adults right now, this kind of approach to the morning is a habit you can instill in your children. It will provide them with a positive outlook and mindset the moment they wake up, which will carry over into their performance and amicability at school and beyond. If they are taught to roll out of bed 4-minutes before the bus arrives with a Poptart in their hands, they’re going to think this kind of morning structure is acceptable.

So what does an ideal morning look like for a child?

It might seem far-off, you might even still have snow on the ground! But before you know it, Summer will be here, and with it: longer days, no school, and lots of free time for kids. It’s never too early to start planning for the inevitable joys and challenges of Summer!

Summer is a time for fun, yes, but while our kids have so much time on their hands, parents can end up overwhelmed and over-committed just trying to balance busy lives with the time demands of bored kids. And we don’t want them to just sit inside all day glued to digital devices, either, but kids today have to be much more alert than earlier generations. Watching the local news can terrify any parent, but with some simple safety strategies and carefully planned activities, we can face these challenges and feel much more confident about our children’s safety AND the quality of their Summer experience!

Here are some essential safety tips you can teach your child NOW:
