Example of a simple routine for families:

 

7am                 healthy breakfast, brush teeth, comb hair, get dressed

 

8am                 children off to school, parents off to work, training or volunteering; for example, at their child’s school

 

12 noon           lunch time

 

3pm                 have after school snack, do homework & family contributed chores

 

5-6pm              have dinner, family time play games

 

8pm-9pm        brush teeth, bath, read book and bedtime

 

 

Children thrive in environments where they know what is going to happen next, daily routines are a great way to ensure consistency in your home.

 

It is important to know where your child is, what your child is doing and who they are with at all times.
