To help your child stay focused in the morning and finish getting ready for school, try using a timer. Separate your child's duties into categories - eg) dressing, eating, brushing teeth, etc. - and determine a reasonable amount of time to do each task. Set the timer once she begins each task, and make a game of beating the timer. If she beats the timer all week, offer a reward on Friday.
