Do you leave the house without brushing your hair or looking in the mirror?
Is the only way to get out of the house on time by losing it with your kids?
Does your 3 year old get distracted every two seconds so that it takes forever for them to get ready and you have to oversee everything just to keep them on track?
After you drop your kids off, do you berate yourself the whole way into work thinking about what a terrible mom you are because you yelled at your kids and were so impatient with them?
Yeah, I’ve been there. I totally get it.
I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.
With just a little bit of time and some effort up front, you can change your mornings. First, you have to change your mindset. Because it’s actually about you.
You can do less, keep calm and still get out the door on time.
I’m not going to give you a chart or tell you to get stuff ready the night before.
This is not about your typical morning routine. I won’t be talking about making time to meditate or how to have your most productive day. I mean, we’ll talk a little bit about how some time alone in the morning can be really helpful for your mood, but there’s a whole lot more.
I think it’s really about expectations and communication, and having the tools to parent the way you want, so your kids listen the first time and do everything they’re capable of to get themselves ready in the morning.
It will totally change your mornings.
It’s not really that hard but it does take a lot of effort to change the way you interact with your kids, and it’s going to be a work in progress. Things will go really great for awhile and then something will change and you’ll have to double down again. You’ll just have to go back to the things you learned in this course and you can get yourself, your kids, and your mornings back on track.
You can start your day feeling like a rockstar instead of feeling terrible.
You can get to work and think about how cute your kids are or how they made you smile in the morning instead of thinking about the epic tantrum they had over their socks.
That’s what this course is all about.
How does the course work?
It’s a four week live video course. Each week you’ll get a video, worksheet and additional resources. I’ll be available via email to support you along the way.
What are the modules?
Module 1 – Setting expectations
The whole family needs to know what’s expected of them so they can actually do it. It’s important to get everyone on the same page and be clear about what you and your husband want to happen in the mornings. This way, your kids can be in charge of everything they’re capable and willing to do, and you can take that off your plate.
Module 2 – Timing is everything
