Our daughter has a morning routine which is totally fine with us. We respect her time and what she needs to do to get ready for her morning. However, recently she has started dragging in the morning and making herself late for school. When we give her time warnings she simply replies "ok". She doesn't move faster with the time in mind at all. She doesn't care that she is late. So I figured, why should we then stress ourselves over it? It only makes the house more tense. I wish it were that simply, but the problem doesn't end there. The school will want to know why she is late and we are the parents so they come to us. Plus, she expects my husband to walk her to her class when she is late. We both don't think he should if she chooses to be late. Fighting her about the time doesn’t bother her but it agitates my husband and me a lot and causes the morning to be tense and just blah. What should we do about this?

The night before have her pick out her clothes lay-ed out on what she will wear tomorrow. Have her place her backpack in the car and really to go. Have her lunch really to pick up in the refrigerator the night before. Have her set her alarm just before bed time. See you are placing the responsbility in her hands on what to do. Routine.
