If I had a kid, I would make sure she woke up in the morning with enough time to get dressed, eat breakfast, gather her things for the day, and get to school on time. I would know sleep is important for her, so I would set a bedtime and make sure she got into sleepy mode before bed.
I’m going to try this explicit approach with myself. I have 95% of a working routine written down. I added in things that I wouldn’t make a kid do, like: “Review to-do list and identify the day’s most important tasks.” It’ll take a little more tweaking before I’m satisfied with the routine as written, but I’m nearly there. (Implementing is a separate thing on the list. Baby steps!) 16 months ago
