Morning routine
how to ease the chaos
Those 30 minutes before you head out the door every morning can often be the most stressful of the day. Speedily coaxing breakfast into hungry mouths, nagging kids to brush their teeth, and where oh where do those shoes always disappear, just as you think you are ready?

Workday mornings often feel like a race of clock versus parent, and little ones never seem to be able to move fast enough to keep up.

Though it's impossible to ever truly master the morning chaos, there are a few things you can do to make mornings a little easier and reduce the nagging or yelling that always seems to eventuate on a stressful morning.

Ditch the dummy
Dummies (pacifiers) are both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, they soothe an unsettled baby and help with the discomfort of teething. On the other, there are concerns that they can cause dental problems and affect speech development, as toddlers get older.

Experts recommend you ditch the dummy by a child's first birthday – the earlier you to do it the easier it is as the child hasn't had chance to become dependent on it; by 18 months a child has developed a strong attachment to the dummy and it will be harder to remove. There are several different approaches to ditching the dummy. A lot depends on your child, their age, and how often they use the dummy.
