What if there were an easier way to get your children into the car, buckled up, without fighting or frustration?
There is. I promise. It’s rooted in neuroscience and helps us create a new pattern in our child’s brains so that we don’t get stuck in the same crappy car routine over and over again.
Let’s imagine you’ve done everything possible to prepare for your family’s morning. The night before you let your child sleep in their clothes (because what does it really matter?!), you packed lunches, and backpacks are sitting by the door.
You navigate waking up, bathroom tasks, at least the bare minimum of breakfast, and shoes are finally on your child’s feet.
As you leave your home and approach the car door chaos ensues as sibling rivalry begins.
Your children dogpile in through the same car door pushing and giggling while you struggle to guide them through the same steps they’re SUPPOSED to follow every single time.
You think, “Why does this have to be so stinkin’ hard?!”
You say, “We do this Every. Single. Day. JUST BUCKLE UP and keep your hands to yourself!”
With your head hanging in defeat you go through your mind’s rolodex of strategies that you read somewhere and muster up the courage to try again. This time without threatening, yelling, or bribing.
What if there could be an easier way to get your children into the car, buckled up, and without fighting or frustration?
