When part of a routine, children can develop relationships with those they interact with during those activities, and it can help support a sense of belonging and self-confidence. As they grow, they will be able to follow routines, begin to demonstrate independence, and more easily adjust to change.
Create a schedule and routine for your family does not have to be hard; you can keep it simple.
Think of the things you do each day and break those down into steps.
You can review this schedule daily with your children and have it in a place they can easily see.
It's important to remain flexible and let your child know that sometimes plans do change, but also try to give them a warming if you know something will be different.
