2. Make a Good List

While you are waking your child up with a positive ‘Good Morning’ and a little back rub, talk about the good parts of today that await her, in a relaxed, quiet voice. You don’t have to talk loud to get her attention while she’s leaving dreamland. As she starts to stir, mention that grandma will be picking her up at school today, and how she loves to play a board game after homework is done. Talk about the assembly scheduled for this afternoon complete with a live band. Talk about the movie you will watch after dinner, and how you will put extra butter on her popcorn for her. When kids have something to look forward to, why wouldn’t they want to get up?
