    Does anyone else feel the strain, as you to help everyone get ready for school? Or church, or soccer, or wherever you're taking young people on a timeline?? I do my best to make the older 3 (11, 9, 6) as independant as possible (I'm going to have no problem if they forget their lunch (no cafeteria) some day). They are actively involved in packing their lunches (in the evening), and getting ready in the morning. But still... My 6 year old left the other morning without eating breakfast. She was served what she asked for, and decided she didn't like the look of it... I figure I have to let them fail to help them succeed independantly, but our mornings are stressful!
