•School age children are used to routines at school so try to recreate this at home if you can. Lots of schools will have provided timetables. Use these or adapt to fit your day.
•If your child is reluctant to follow your routine, try not to let it get to you. They are also feeling the strain.
•It may take a while to get it right so keep being kind to yourself. Start each new day afresh – don’t worry about what has gone before.
