Chalk Talk: The Importance of Routine for Young Students
Human beings fear the unknown, and this is especially true for little human beings. Our little ones are still trying to find their place in the world and while they are looking, it is important that we as parents help them by creating stability and comfort in their lives. One way to help is by establishing routines and schedules. Kids need organization and need to know what is coming next, so to establish schedules and routines early on will help your child develop good habits and good behavior. These regular, established schedules and routines will decrease any anxiety and stress that your child may feel because they know what to expect and what will come next. Soon your little one will be cleaning up after themself, getting their teeth brushed and getting pajamas on all by themselves, because that is the routine you have established and they can do it.
