It’s officially summer break and that means we get to sleep a little later and have a more lax schedule. We tend to do better with a predictable daily routine . With that being said my solution comes in the form of a Rules List. It keeps life a little more organized & the kids on track.


Like most kids today they just LOVE their electronics. Kids are glued to their Ipad & with subscriptions like Netflix & Youtube it can be a daunting task trying to peel them away from their beloved electronics. This simple list will assure that they are getting things done and earning time with their gismos. Figure out what works best for your family and do that.

Start With 

  • Brush Your Teeth
  • Brush Your Hair
  • Get Dressed
  • Have Breakfast
  • Make Your Bed

At first your little ones might put up a fight , whine and complain. Be consistent ,it will become routine for them. It’s simple and easy enough for the kids to accomplish and it will help them transition when it’s time to go back to school by staying organized all year round.
