Back to School Hacks: Getting Out the Door (and Back)
This is the second year I've used a LEAVING FOR SCHOOL/COMING HOME FROM SCHOOL sign in the hopes of instilling responsibility (and lessening mom + dad's)...
It works! Is it foolproof? No. Do they try to skip over it (esp coming home)? Yes.
But that's okay-- it really is a huge help. I have the older sib read it out loud to the younger as they put their shoes on (this sign is on the garage door). The younger one yells "check!" if she's done it and "oops!" if she hasn't.
Want to make your own? Follow this link and either print it as is, or use the second page to write in your own.
It's not quite like getting them to work the whole farm, but it's a step toward less work for you, right?
