Children who move at a snail’s pace can — and should — learn that tardiness has consequences. As a father, your goal should be to encourage your dawdlers to take charge of this area of their life. That way, they’ll learn that no matter how much they like to putter around the house, some things — like getting to school on time — simply aren’t negotiable.


 


You can do your part by making sure that distractions are kept to a minimum when you’re trying to get out the door. If the TV’s turned off, the toy trains are put away, and the younger siblings are kept from trying to best the elder ones in a game of hoops, the latter will be better able to focus on getting ready.
