The first thing important to establish here is a dialogue between your family members about the issue of morning routine: what promotes a good, pleasant routine for everyone and what makes everyone's routine harder. It would then be a very good idea to involve the kids in coming up with clear rules for promoting pleasant and efficient routines, such as avoiding screen use in the evening and morning. Be aware that these rules should apply to all household members since setting a personal example for the kids is as always our most important tool, or in other words: don't make demands of your kids that you would not be able to meet yourselves. Ask yourselves if you would be able to avoid screen use while you're getting ready? We at ParaNet challenge our parents to avoid screen use for set amounts of times and only once they have experienced that difficulty they get back to setting the challenge for the family as a whole.
