When they have routines to follow, children know exactly what they are supposed to do. “Before I go to bed, I put on my pajamas, wash my face and hands, brush my teeth, and pick out a book.”—Sophia When children have rules and routines at home, the day runs smoother—and children are better able to adapt to rules and routines at school.
