Include your child in the plan. “The morning routine should be mutually established,” says Nancy K. Gretzinger, EdD, a retired educator from Gilbert, Arizona. Also, put your child’s backpack near the door so you’re both ready to start the day organized. “Make it a habit that the backpack is there at the end of the evening, so there’s no hunting for it in the morning when the time is precious,” Dr. Gretzinger says. Here are some proven morning habits of A+ students which may help your family.

When your child arrives home, suggest changing out of school clothes, offer a nutritious snack and allow about 20-30 minutes to unwind, Dr. Gretzinger says. This time can be at the discretion of your child. Perhaps they want to watch TV or play outside. Taking a break before studying is just one of the many things tutoring centers recommend to make children better students.
