Pick Up Your Pace on the School Drop-off

Plenty of kids of all ages take the bus to school and back, but not all of them do. Sometimes taking your kids to school yourself is safer or more convenient, especially when you're already going to work. If you need to do a school run, perhaps combined with your commute, there are some important things you should take into account.

Having a Good Routine

Getting the kids out of the house in the morning is no easy feat. If someone isn't refusing to brush their teeth, someone else has lost a shoe. Having a good routine helps to get everyone ready and keep them on track. You can give the kids more responsibility by creating a chart or task "clock".

How to Use the Time

What should you do on the way to school? It might take you a while, so it's worth using the time wisely. You could discuss what's coming in the day ahead, or just catch up on what has been happening during the week. It's also a good time to have some fun and maybe play a car game or listen to music.

Know How Your Child's School Operates

If you're dropping off your kids at school, you should know what rules the school has. They might have policies in place about whether you can park or how long you're allowed to spend outside the school gates.

Your Vehicle

Don't forget to think about your car, including how safe it is. If you're in the market for a new family car, you could think about either buying or leasing as an option that works for you.
