Morning Tips For Parents

wpid-Discpline750.jpgUse these tried and true methods that I have collected over the years from parents who

want to get their kids off to a great start! Just found similar tips and strategies from


1. Pre-pick clothes

I can personally vouch for this super tip. It really does cut out all the indecision, moaning

groaning, and arguements on school days. This simplifies getting dressed in the mornings.

2. Make wake-up time easier.

Get everyone their own alarm clock- no matter how young your kids are. Teach them to set them.

This helps deflect any annoyance that may be felt away from the parent to the inanimate

alarm clock.

3. Centralize papers

Establish a central location for your kids to place permission slips, homework, tests, and

and any other important papers. Stacking trays or any type of file folders work well for this

purpose.  Use them like a mailbox. Kids deposit papers there when they get home and get their mail

when they leave for school in the morning.

These are my top 3 tips to make your kids’ mornings go a bit smoother. What other great tips can you offer and share? I’m sure they will be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

Believe In Yourself

Mary AnnKnow who you are. Know what your unique strengths and gifts are, then be it, and do it. Great provoking thoughts by Brian Johnson @Philo_Notes and and Services. But where do we go from here? I believe the lesson here in simple language is uncomplicated and quite understandable: BELIEVE IN YOUSELF!

Faith in your abilities is the fountainhead of your peace and happiness.You want to be steadfast and make the right decisions, but you sometimes grow weary. You can’t do it alone. You were not meant too. What is important for you to realize is that others, and external events don’t ever have the power to hold you back, and keep your dreams at a distance. If you believe otherwise, you are undoubtedly very unhappy.

There is no one or anything that can steal your joy, ever! Start now by accepting, but not liking, the negative circumstances in your life. Before you can change anything, you have to recognize that what you have or don’t have. what you’re experiencing, or lacking is the way it is for NOW. If you accept the fact that you have some unpleasant things, people, and circumstances in your life, they cease to have power over you.

When you accept but not necessarily like what’s going on in your life, you are ready to accept blessings. YES, BLESSINGS! They often sometimes come by the way of an idea on how to improve your situation, an ad on TV, a sign in a store, or the support of a co-worker, or family member or close friend who offers advice.You only have to seek them out. Blessings are available to you when you accept what is, rather than resist the negativity around you. When you accept the circumstances in your life, and create the action plans for modifications, then you can finally move forward on the path to more joy and peace in your life.

Many Blessings To You now and forever! You deserve them!
