Benefits of Daily Routine for Children
It is said that if you can fit any activity in your routine then it becomes habit, and once it becomes habit then you don’t need to force anyone to do it. This way you can inculcate good habits in your children.
If you can regularly and religiously follow children’s meal times and bed times, then at least one thing is going to happen, and that is their health will improve. Due to better sleep and food, they will have better immunity. It means less sick leaves and less doctor visits. Time and money spend in this course can be invested somewhere else.
Better Utilization of Time
Since you are going to plan things, you can decide which things should get more importance. You can set aside time which you can spend with your children.
Plan all activities like morning chores, play time, meal times, outdoor activities, studying etc. Not that always you are going to complete these activities 100%. So prioritize them, and make sure that first three things must be completed on time.
Life Becomes Easier
