Are you sick of nagging your kids to get ready in the morning? Let Alexa do it for you!
Use the Alexa app to set up reminders! This is a tip I learned as an assistive technology option for children that have issues remembering routines and it has helped our family substantially!

Our current morning prompts(we have a long morning as my daughter needs to be able to watch tv and relax before school)
7:30am: Good Morning! Have you started breakfast yet?
7:50am Hi Dawn. Breakfast should be done. Please finish and put plates away.
7:55am Hi Dawn. Time to get dressed.
8:00am Thanks for getting dressed. Did you remember your socks & to put away dirty clothes?
8:10am Hi Dawn. Its time to brush your teeth & hair
8:20am Hi Dawn. Its almost time to go. Put on your shoes and backpack. Have a great day at school
The beauty of this is that my daughter feels independent. She feels she’s doing it on her own. She’s doesn’t feel like I’m harping on her. I don’t know why she listens better to a computer voice but she does. I can now get dressed and shower and drink my coffee while she can independently move through her morning routine happily
