For most parents, it’s no secret that a daily routine is a magic ingredient for a good day! Daily routines help to create a calm environment by instilling stability and security. Kids need this type of predictability and structure in a world that is constantly changing and surprising them. No matter their age, a daily routine for kids is crucial. And Lingokids is here to help make the different parts of your child’s day fun, engaging, and full of learning opportunities!
Setting up familiar, structured routines helps your child thrive. Here are just a few reasons why it’s important that kids have daily routines to count on:
- Practice healthy habits – Routines help children get into the practice of brushing their teeth, cleaning themselves, preparing meals, etc. These skills will help them later on in life when they will eventually have to care for themselves.
- Build confidence – Having chores and household norms helps kids develop a sense of responsibility and pride in their independence.
- Fosters positive relationships – Children will develop secure relationships with their caregivers because they can trust in the stability of their daily lives.
- Helps kids feel safe – Believe it or not, the predictability of a routine will help children cope during significant life events such as illness, divorce, death, etc. Children don’t have much control over where they go and what they do, but a predictable routine gives them some authority over their daily lives.
