How do you manage sending the children to school in time?

Maybe you could try asking your son to bathe the evening before. You could get his clothes ready the evening before and put them the chair in his bedroom. You could have his school bag packed the evening before. You could set your alarm clock as early as necessary. It would be wise for you to aim to get your son to school fifteen minutes early. Then even if he is a bit late he will be on time. Good luck. My son always get to school on time. The only thing is he sometimes forgets his PE kit. He takes a packed lunch to school with him.

School starts so so early that it is really difficult getting the little ones up and motivated and there on time. I used to set my alarm early so that I could have a coffee and be ready myself and then it was a push all the way to get them there. It is important tho. If you get them there late too often then the school will look at you, the parent as being at fault and you may have to go to court on it and could face a fine. As parents, we are ultimately the ones responsible for seeing to it that our kids get to school every day and on time. most kids, once they get used to it, don't have a problem moving in the morning. I so love vacations and snow days!
