The Punctual Child September 7, 2018

Being late has become a status symbol of how busy we are, but it’s not doing us any favors when it comes to stress and anxiety and our interpersonal relationships.

Learn to love the kitchen timer and other tried-and-true tips to get kids on the bus on time. Bonus is that your household will run more smoothly and everyone will be more relaxed.
