When it comes to getting ready for the school run, are you sick
of the constant battle to get your little one up and dressed in

- Introducing music when waking them up

in the right frame of mind for the day of learning

encourage them to wake up more naturally and of their own
- Always keep a smile on your face
Although patience can wear thin during the morning school run, be
patient as it may only result in your child resisting
