How many minutes do you wake your kids up before they go to school?

I wake mine up about 45 min before they go out and wait for the bus.

  • My kids wake themselves up before school. They get up between 6-7am and leave for the bus at 8am. I get up at 7:30am (if I get up at all) just to make sure they leave on time but they usually don't need me up at all. They really only need like 15 minutes. All they do is get dressed and brush their hair.

  • We live less than 5 minutes away from the school. But my son gets up about 5:30/6:00am EVERYDAY, regardless to what. And he always has. He doesn't live for school till about 8:00am

  • I make sure my daughter is up by 6:15, (which she usually is already) and she's at her bus stop by 6:45. I get my son up around 8:30 and he's at school by 8:55.

  • 2 hours...both of them require a lot of help getting fed, dressed and ready. Also a little playtime is a good thing! I get them up at six and school for my son starts at 8..

  • My 5 year old is woke up about 70 minutes prior to when he has to get on the bus, but that is because he likes to play a little before he leaves for school and is a dawdler. My daughter I only need to get up about 30 minutes before we need to be somewhere because she loves to get ready and go.
