Below you will find tips on how to help children at different ages follow routines.
Routines are there to give a framework for you and your family. They play a really useful part in keeping family life calmer and more organised. They can help everyone get enough family time and rest time.
Sometimes they won’t work for all sorts of reasons. Try not to worry when this happens. Having flexibility makes room for difficult times as well as fun times.
Get back to the routines that work for your family when you can. Your family will soon get back into the patterns that help them feel safe and secure.
