Ok. He is mostly awesome. But, can't rush or get ready in time. Spends 30 minutes putting on shoes. When I say, time to go, he starts unpacking his backpack, to rearrange. Umm no, ss has already not made a lunch, brushed teeth, done patch, exercise, filled water bottles.

Girl that's DD13 she's up at 6am-her bus comes at 7:45am.

All she has to do is get dressed.

And every day she is Sooooooooooo slow getting out the door.


Maybe set timers?

Do prep the night before?

I have a OCD 9 year old and literally everything is lined up perfectly the night before.

Outfits are arranged by day(he irons them before hanging them up), socks and boxers in a basket by day, backpack in his locker all packed ready to go, shoes under backpack in locker, jacket hanging up in locker, hair products and bath items lined up to go, meds lined up and laid out on top of their containers, he packs his own lunch the night before too and his snack. Heaven forbid the person who messes up his order he gets very upset. Even the bus driver shows up on the dot at 6:20.

Gets up at 6 a.m out the the door at 6:20 a.m. All I do is make sure he's awake and basically sit in my rocking chair on the porch drinking my coffee. Just waiting for him to come outside for the bus. Lol

Teach him time management skills. Write all his tasks down in order with a time limit and set timers. No lunch on time, out the door without a lunch, no shoes on, ok I guess you go shoeless today..

We have tried that, he even has reminders posted all over.
It has now gotten to if he is late out the door, and late for school, that i won't go in and excuse him. Which unexcused can lead to detentions.

It’s natural but it needs to be paired with another punishment at home. Every late he goes to bed an hour early or loses tv, computer or whatever it is he does after school. If he gets a detention than it’s a bigger consequence. 2 weeks being grounded or something.

Unfortunately early bedtimes don't work. He is overweight and does wrestling in the evenings. Withholding physical exercise is not any option as he would prefer to not go most days.

Quoting codysara: You are wasting your talents as a stripper, yippy should definitely be a family counselor with all your awesome advice!
