After School Routine Chart #ONatural

The school year is now well under way.
We have had a couple of weeks now, to figure out our after school routine.
Have YOU figured out an after school routine that works for you and your family?

Once you have found an after school routine that works for you, you will notice that your children may be more calm and have less meltdowns. My son is very prone to meltdowns, he often has a hard time regulating himself, especially when he is tired or has been sitting still for a long time at school. I have found that when we follow the routine below AND when I ensure that he has had a healthy snack, it helps him be more regulated, which in turn affects our overall family cohesiveness. Predictability and consistency are key with many children. When children know what to expect next, they are able to prepare themselves accordingly, which in turn reduces meltdowns. This applies to children of all ages.

Here is what our after school routine chart looks like MOST nights:

    I am a list-maker so teaching the kids to make lists and be organized at a young age is a great idea!

    This is exactly what my kids need. I am constantly having to remind them and tell them step by step what they need to be doing. They need a bedtime list too..

    We do something similar to this at home. I think it’s important to teach your kids how to stick to a routine.
