In this short video, parents talk about routines. They say that having some structure to your day helps children know what’s coming next. It helps them feel safe and makes life easier for you. Routines also help children learn healthy habits like brushing teeth, washing hands and eating regular meals. And routines help get them ready in the morning, and into bed at night.
