Lil Tip: Race to the Door!

When time's not on your side, resort to friendly, family competition to get your kids (and yourself) out the door!

Whether you're running late because an alarm clock didn't go off, or it's just one of those days, divide the family into teams so you can speedily get bathed, dressed, and fed. Turn your front door into the finish line and whoever gets there first wins a prize.

Creativity beats being frazzled. And, the kids will think it's a game.
