Research shows that kids who miss too much kindergarten may struggle more later in school.
Your child will be absent or tardy less if you:
--Make reliable transportation and childcare plans.
--Organize school supplies ahead of time. Mornings are too rushed to sign permission slips, fill out forms and review schoolwork. Do these tasks in the evening.
--Emphasize bedtime and morning routines. Stick to a regular, reasonable sleep schedule to make mornings easier. Doing things in the same order each day (waking up, brushing teeth, getting dressed, etc.) builds kids' self-esteem.
