With the new school year here, parents around the country will share one struggle: getting their children out of bed in time for school. Whether you are preparing your student for the new school year or they have already started classes, it can often feel like an impossible task to get your children out of bed on time.

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

The Tutoring Center, Cypress Creek Plaza knows all about the struggles parents face getting their children out of bed and has prepared the following tips to help.

Leave Electronic Devices in the Kitchen

Despite your child going to bed at their assigned time, if they take their electronic device with them then there’s a good chance that they spend hours swiping and double tapping instead of actually going to sleep. The first benefit of this tip is that removing these devices can be a great way to create a distraction-free area and help them get to sleep on time, ready to wake up in the morning. The second benefit works to get your children out of bed in the morning. Even though you don’t understand their addiction to these devices, you can bet on the fact that the need to check their notifications and reply to their messages is a great motivator to get them out of bed in the morning and all the way down to the kitchen.

Meet You in the Kitchen!

Speaking of arriving in the kitchen, if your child has a favorite breakfast food then this can be used as a great reward. Together, decide on a time in the morning which you agree to be present in the kitchen and ready to cook their favorite meal. Agree that, if your child can get out of bed and make it to the kitchen by this time (likely to check their phone!) then you will agree to cook the breakfast of their choosing. You can bet that a growing teen’s stomach will get them out of bed if it knows a reward will come as a result. Whether your student struggled with a class in the previous school year or they need a little more homework help than you can provide, tutoring in Cypress Creek Plaza can help.

Napping Is the Enemy

Not just restricted to summer vacation time, napping can also be part of a school routine where your child comes home from a long day of studying and takes a nap before they complete their homework or eat their dinner. This can make it difficult for their mind and body to fall asleep mere hours later when it’s time for bed, in turn, making it harder for them to wake up in the morning. Combat this by discouraging naps. Find fun, active games and learning activities for them to play which can keep their body and mind awake and focused. If they don’t have any homework, consider asking them to help you prepare dinner or complete some afternoon chores. This can help to further exhaust their brain and body so that both are ready for sleep.

Allow Time for Snoozing in the Morning

Every parent is guilty of rolling over and hitting the snooze button until the very last minute. So then it should't surprise you that your child does this, not because they don’t want to get out of bed, but simply because it can be difficult to wake up and rise from bed straight away. Instead, consider setting their alarm 5-10 minutes early and accommodate for some snooze time. Often, just a couple of extra minutes each morning to stretch in bed and prepare themselves for the day ahead is enough, making them ready for when it’s really time to get out of bed.
