“Ask any mom what part of the day is the most stressful, and she’ll say it’s the mornings,” says Laura Dellutri, lifestyle expert and renowned author. “It can be stressful getting kids to wake up on time, feed them breakfast, check in and organize homework, all while sticking to a tight schedule. Here are some tips from Laura to help moms go from chaos to calm in the morning:
Tip # 1: prepare the day before and peace will reign in the morning
Teach kids how to hang out their clothes, pack their backpacks, and even get their shoes ready to go in the morning. Taking 10 minutes before bed will save moms 30 minutes of power struggles in the morning.
Tip # 2 Use Natural Medicines For Restful Sleep
Adults need 7-9 hours of sleep, but school-aged children need more: 8-14 hours a night to feel awake and rested each morning. “For healthier sleep, I prefer SleepCalm without melatonin from Boiron. It’s the neat way to fall asleep and stay asleep without feeling groggy the next day, and that’s important, ”says Dellutri.

Tip # 3: make morning meals fun and creative
“The secret to keeping kids happy at breakfast time is creativity, while keeping it simple,” says Dellutri. Toaster waffles are one of the easiest breakfasts to serve. “I prefer Eggoji waffles. They are a fun twist on the classic, house-style Eggo waffles, with playful animated faces on each waffle. They take breakfast from a high pressure event to an opportunity for parents to create small wins for the whole family, ”according to Dellutri.

An easy fix: Travel with a spare bag in the car with comfortable and fashionable basics that adapt to the occasion or make you more comfortable in the changing weather. “Remember to wear the most comfortable boots in the cold season.
