August 19, 2013 | The Main Dish, Posts with Videos | 0 comments

Getting kids an autopilot for the stuff they have to do everyday

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling frustrated or stressed at the same time every day: maybe bedtime, or homework time, or trying to get out the door in the morning. This short video is about how to get into a better routine.
