My son will be starting school this fall. I am wondering how much ahead of time should I set a schedule - wake up, dressed by time, lunch, etc??? Thanks for the help!

I would recommend a full month and that way his body and mind have time to really get use to the schedule and you can avoid dragging feet and arguments once school starts. I may even start my son's school schedule earlier than a month before it starts. He is so use to sleeping late and getting up early is going to be a huge adjustment for him (and for me).

Thanks Jennifer!! Luckily, my son gets up between 7 & 8am & I am up at 6am. So hopefully getting up early won't be a huge problem. Getting him to eat lunch at the same time every day will be the main issue. Right now he thinks that he can eat any time of the day even when I have a set lunch time. Thanks Again!!
