  • Neither of my kids went to preschool, but when they started Kindergarten, like mommy5409 said, I didn't really have any problems with them getting up in the mornings. Now that they are older, however, is a totally different story!

  • Some children have a hard time adjusting to school after the summer, but now that daylight savings time is almost over, that's a brand new adjustment coming up for some children. The extra hour sounds good, but throws off bedtime. You can adjust the time in about 15 minute incements each day or two until you're at "regular time." Don't be surprised if they are "off" and whiney for a few days until their body adjusts.

  • I try to make it fun to wake up. I start tickling her and singing. She loves going to school so that also helps! BUt she likes waking up with tickles and laughter. It makes it easier to get her dressed and ready faster. Also I make sure that she goes to bed no later than 8:30 at night that the only day she is allowed to watch a movie before bedtime are her "home days" fridays and saturdays since there is no school te next day. :O)
