Plan with your kids not for your kids. Write down the things that need to happen in the morning. Work out times that go along with each task (breakfast at 7:15, brush teeth at 7:35). Now the kids know what is expected and instead of nagging them, you can say, 'What's next on your list?' Practice the morning routine a couple of mornings before it actually needs to happen.
