My son is starting 1st grade this year but it's going to be a huge adjustment because last year kindergarten was only a 1/2 day and he was afternoon. Most days now we start bedtime at 8:30 and he sleeps till about 8 in the morning. He'll be getting on the bus by 7:45 in the am, I am thinking about setting the alarm for 7:30 for 3 or 4 days and starting bedtime at 8, then setting the alarm for 7 and starting bedtime at 7:30. How much time should I give him in the morning to get ready, is 45 minutes enough to eat breakfast and get ready or should I be waking him earlier? And is a 7:30 bedtime too late, we are not a morning family so this is going to be really difficult, any advice would be appreciated.
