Dad-Vice: Waking Up Your Kids in the Morning for School

You ever have a hard time waking up your kids early in the morning for school? Here’s my advice/back to school tip for new parents and not so new parents like myself. The key is gamification, is that even a word? Yes it is.

So when your kid gives you that famous “5 minutes” snooze to stall getting up, you can play this game. Just tell her that you want to do a race, whoever gets ready first is the winner. You’ll be surprised at the change of attitude. She’ll get up faster than Usain Bolt. You don’t even need to have a prize, just the pride of winning is enough. Try it. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. It’s a challenge being a father and I hope this helps.
