It happened! I had been expecting it. I’m actually surprised it didn’t happen before now! I get it…it’s darker in the morning…maybe it happens to be a Monday…or it’s raining…the planets aren’t properly aligned to make for optimal waking-up conditions!
Ever experienced your kids sleeping through their alarms and being put on edge the second you say, “Hey, it’s 8:00 AM! You’re going to miss the bus!” But did they hit snooze too many times because they are tired from a weekend of texting their friends and doing craft projects? Or might we be running headlong into the early signs of ‘Unmotivated Mornings’?
If you are noticing days when your child doesn’t seem bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at the breakfast table, maybe motivation is waning in your household as well. As a parent, how you react and deal with the issue can either help or hurt the situation.
