My son's routine -- Mommastuff question 2

Mommastuff asks:

Do you have routines for your kids? Care to share? Does it really help?


Ethan always has a routine, but it has not really been strict as in there's a set time for each activity. Of course the routine is different for weekends or if there is some special activity, but this is what we basically follow.

This is his routine for the past six weeks, since he went to summer school.

7:30am Wakeup time, then breakfast

After finishing breakfast, he takes a bath and changes

We bring him to school, which begins 8:30 (but we're often late, unfortunately). This goes on till 10:30. The school, by the way, has a more or less consistent sequence of activities.

Go back home, have some snacks. (School is near home.)

Playtime or Elmo DVD -- indoor activities like crayons, books, playing with train set, etc.

Lunch

Naptime -- we let him wake up on his own.

Snacks

Playtime -- roams in the garden. If it's raining, it's indoor activities again

Dinner time

Bath

Milk

Playtime

Lights off at around 9:30 pm .

I believe rountines are helpful since children need to be used to a certain system. I do not believe however, in being very strict with time at this age (he's 2 years 7 months). We'll get to that later :).

Thanks for participating Joey. Ako rin di rin strict when it comes to time. Basta something around that time is okay. :) Basta may consistent set of activities sila.

Kasi si B.boy gusto nya yung ganun na structured.

Pls join me again next week. I might be able to post the new set of questions by Sunday night.
