Waking Up is Hard to Do

If you look outside your window, the leaves are probably vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red. The air has become crisper and you need to grab a sweater before heading outside in the morning. The holidays are just around the corner and you may be looking forward to getting cozy in front of a fireplace soon. Many of these are feelings to which we can all relate to this November. We also know what it feels like when our days begin to feel shorter and we have to wake up in the morning without the sun’s rays coaxing us out of bed. For students of all ages, waking up in the early morning for school can be a big hurdle, especially in the fall and winter seasons.

Starting in fifth grade, children should be practicing independently waking up in the morning and getting their day started. If they don’t find a system that works for them during their school days at home, you could be making a phone call every morning to make sure your children roll out of bed to get to class on time in college! Below are some of our tips and ideas that might help your children rise and shine all on their own.
