Getting Out the Door in the Morning

Do you ever feel like you might tear your hair out in the morning trying to get everyone out the door?

Do you ever feel like you might tear your hair out in the morning trying to get everyone out the door? I know I do!

The other day I was SO frustrated as I told one of my teenagers, for the tenth time, we had to go. The other kids were in the car waiting, and with each second that passed I felt my blood pressure rising.  I finally marched into the house and announced I was leaving in one minute with or without her.  The minute came and went and still no daughter.  So, I simply drove away, and you know what?  I felt empowered.  I let the consequences scream so I didn’t have to. 

Now, I realize that won’t work with a toddler.  You can’t just drive off and leave little ones behind.  There’s something to be said for establishing clear consequences for irresponsibility and then sticking with them!
