Kids feel safest when they know what's expected of them. Change is unsettling, and it's helpful to know that there's a structure to every day. In families with two homes due to separation or divorce, it's best for kids to have the same routine in each home; set them up for success with a visual routine chart in both houses.
As each "to do" is completed, your child moves a magnet off the chart. Have them help you construct the routine, helping increase their sense of responsibility and control. As an added bonus, you'll find a dramatic decrease in stalling tactics and tantrums. Kids love the task of moving the magnets.
