My regular (and super-fun and wise) podcast guest, Sara Kuljis of Yosemite Sierra Summer Camp and Emerald Cove Day Camp, joined me on Facebook Live for this month’s One Simple Thing topic: Peaceful Mornings. You can read more ideas in this month’s post: 10 Solutions for Chaotic Mornings.
This podcast is the audio from Sara’s and my Facebook Live discussion about creating more peaceful mornings with your family.
A few (of many) excellent tips from Sara:
- Solve one little problem.
- Let them face the natural consequences (not our barking and reminding!) of being late and remembering items.
- You are the thermostat. Keep it warm (not hot). Make your morning conversations NOT about school and logistics. Send them off with encouraging words like, “I just want you to know how much I like you.”
If you missed last month’s One Simple Thing, you can read about it here: How to Have a Closer Family in 5 Minutes a Day.
Please share your ideas for more peaceful mornings – and any victories you have this month in making small changes – in the comments! Or, send me an email!
