    Prepare lunches the night before so you do not need to worry about it last minute. It might be a good idea to select clothes the night before so there is one less battle to deal with. Do your best to come up with a system that works for your schedule and do what you can the night before to make mornings easier.

    As a mom who has raised three now grown children my suggestion is make sure the lunches are made the night before just after dinner when the dishes are being done. Have them make their own lunches and put it in the refrigerator, then the kids just have to grab them on the way out.
