The summer vacation period provides a well-deserved break for students. However, getting children back on to a school-based routine can often feel like an impossible challenge. Nobody likes to get out of bed early in the morning. That’s just a common truth in life. However, it’s even more relative for a student who has spent months or even just weeks sleeping in and is suddenly required to change it up and get out of bed in time for school.

Tips to Help Get Your Children out of Bed in the Morning

If you are looking to prepare your child for an upcoming school-based routine or you’re struggling to get them to school already, below are some tips from The Tutoring Center, Aberdeen NJ which can help.

Cell Phones and Tablets Sleep in the Kitchen

It’s safe to assume that if your child takes their cell phone or tablet to their bedroom at night that they spend time swiping and double-tapping when they should be sleeping and getting their body ready for the early morning ahead. Create a rule which requires all tablets and cell phones, or any electronic devices for that matter, to be left in the kitchen before your children go to bed. This rule has two great benefits. The first is that it removes a powerful distraction from your child’s bedroom which can and will prevent them from getting a good night's sleep and being ready to wake up early in the morning. The second, and most powerful, is that this method requires your child to get out of bed to check their messages and notifications. While, as a parent, you may not fully understand the appeal, you can bet that responding to messages and reading the latest social media posts is a powerful motivator to get any student out of bed in the morning.

Now That They Are in the Kitchen

The stomach of any growing teen can often have a mind of its own, and it’s this mind which you can appeal to in the morning by utilizing a reward system. Look at your morning routine and decide on a time which your student needs to be out of bed. Agree that, up until this time, you will be in the kitchen ready to prepare their favorite meal or even just a meal of their choice. However, if they aren’t in the kitchen in time then meal preparation is up to them. As your child enters a new school year, their classes and lessons will become more difficult and complex, often to a level that you, as a parent, find it difficult to understand. If your student needs more homework help than you are able to provide or they struggled with a particular class and you don’t want them to fall behind in the new school year, tutoring in Aberdeen NJ can help.

No More Napping!

Adults are just as guilty of napping as children, whether it’s during the day between errands or even in the afternoon alongside a sleepy student. However, as refreshing as they may be, naps make it more difficult for a student to fall asleep mere hours later when it’s time for them to go to bed and sleep for the night. Instead of allowing naps, encourage your student to complete their homework when they return home and either ask them to help you in the kitchen to prepare dinner or find them an active fun game which they can play to keep both their brain and their body awake. Preventing naps will leave your student more tired when it comes time for bed, helping them to drift off easily and feel refreshed enough to get out of bed in the morning.

Encourage Snoozing

That’s right! Encourage snoozing. While it may seem counterproductive, the trick is to set their alarm a few minutes earlier. Just five minutes of snoozing time in the morning before they actually need to get out of bed can be enough for your child to stretch in the warmth and comfort of their bed and prepare their mind for the day ahead. This also gives their stomach time to remember that there will be a delicious breakfast waiting for them if they get out of bed when their alarm actually tells them to.
