Morning Routine Chart!

A quick update on the Routine tool card. As I shared, a few weeks ago, I came up with a preliminary routine . We tried it out for a few weeks, and what I discovered is that while it was helpful to see the major tasks that had to be done, we rarely followed the exact order as written.

Today I made a finalized plan.

The beauty of this version is that it takes the major elements from the preliminary plan but isn't as rigid. The pictorial nature should be easy for C to understand, and the fact that it isn't a list gives us flexibility to follow whatever order makes sense for a given day.

I still need to work on the evening routine chart, and will share that too when it is completed.

  1. I like this idea. Can you explain how the chart works? I'm thinking of making one, and using a check mark square to place on the activities once we've done them.

  2. All routine charts can work differently to meet an individual family's needs. Mine is purely a visual reminder. We don't check things off, although I suppose if it turned out to be helpful, we could use post-it notes or something else temporary to accomplish that.

    Here's a site that explains routine charts: http://www.examiner.com/positive-discipline-parenting-in-national/a-visual-bedtime-routine-chart-a-positive-discipline-parenting-tool
