Let's begin today with some clever ways to wake "sleepyheads".  If getting out of bed seems to be a continual morning concern, you might try pulling up the shades in the bedroom and let the sunlight help wake you up.  

Experts suggest that as soon as each child enters school, they are given their own alarm clock.  This not only makes them feel more grown up, it shifts the responsibility on to them where it essentially belongs.  If you, the leader of the pack, find yourself turning off the alarm and snoozing a few minutes more than you should, set two alarm clocks and put one by the bed; the second far enough away so that you must get up to turn it off.  

Once you're up, it's best to avoid the "what-will-I-wear-today?" panic by beginning a family habit of picking out what you'll wear the night before and putting all necessary items out ready to simply be put on.

If you have babies and toddlers it helps to dress them before they're even out of the crib and wide awake enough to run around and play rather than stand still and get dressed.  This saves a lot of time and patience!  

Finally, set a new house rules (soon to become habit) that no one enters the kitchen until they're dressed and ready to go.  School work and books, even parents work-related materials, are to be placed by the door the night before.

Try a few of these suggestions to help you turn morning chaos into morning calm.
