Have your kids take a shower or a bath at night and have them pick their clothes out at night, this will make a smoother morning.

That is exactly what we do and it works out fantastically! Our mornings are so much more calmer now that we are doing this! (09/19/2007)
We have a boy and a girl and they are still young enough to take a bath together. We've always done night-time bath and yes it makes for smoother mornings. It would be just too rushed to try and do baths before school. I think it helps them get to sleep better too. We do dinner, bath, story-time and then bed-time. Kids need a schedule.
They don't choose their clothes, I do that in the morning while they are eating breakfast or having some free time. I lay the clothes out on their beds. (09/19/2007)
Hello all, I am a granny to 18 kids now---but when I was raising my 4, I did exactly this---all of us were cranky in the morn, including me, so baths/showers the nite before and they got to pick out their own clothes and each had their own pile on the couch before they went to bed. Was sooo much less stress in those days---and it sounds like it still works very well today!!! Annie (09/19/2007)
You mean there are people that get up and do this in the morning? (11/14/2008)
