Making an Agenda
When making an agenda, the child has to write this. We added a column for a picture, and then a clock with the time it had to be done. This also helped us to stop morning arguments, and we were early for school after this for the ½ hour!
A treat incentive is given if we are out of the house on time: 4 mornings out of 5. This also started the training for him to have tasks, like making lunch and packing bags in the morning. We then repeated this a few weeks after for an evening agenda.
As a single parent, you will have enough to do: organizing food, meals, travel & accommodation, emailing and blogging, getting a vehicle ready if you need one along the way etc.
Remember – the more you train your child before you go, the easier it will be to have help (without arguments) when you start traveling.
I am very proud of the positive attitude and willingness of my son, especially as he started when he was only six years old to really work as a team towards our goal!
