Mornings at my house can be really stressful, and we've worked really hard to start the day calmly. Just thought I'd share what we do! I hope it encourages you!

I'm going to be the heretic here and suggest something really mean:

Get up 90 minutes before anyone needs to leave the house. Yes, that means going to be 90 minutes earlier, although I'd recommend 2 hours earlier... just to make it easier.

If you want it even easier, take out all the scheduled activities (classes, sports, lessons, meetings) after dinner. A hectic last night makes for poor sleep which makes for difficult (not well-rested = depleted to start the day, cue the misery and inability to cooperate...)
