Q: Our mornings are very hectic at our house. Any suggestions?

A:  As part of your evening routine, have your children pack their book bags each evening with everything they will need--homework, books, lunch money--so they are ready to go in the morning to avoid last minute searches and chaos.  Post a checklist by the door of everything to be included in their book bags.  Also, on weekends, help them go through their backpacks to remove old work (save in a folder for use later if needed) and see if they need any new supplies like notebook paper.  Reserve a shelf or cabinet by the front door for items that your child takes to school every day.  A little organization and pre-planning can help with the chaos.
