I'm a step parent to a set of twins (boys 8yo) and mornings have been the biggest struggle ever. No matter how early I put them to bed or how early I try to get them up, they will not get up and get ready for school anymore.
They have been slowly coming off their melatonin gummies since bed time isn't a struggle as much anymore but now it's become mornings. They have been recently late to school because they choose the worst time to decide what they want to wear or eat before taking their medication ( generic brand of Adderall XR)
I've tried everything they tell me to do in parenting classes or even those guides from books but nothing seems to work and their father isn't their in the mornings cause of work so he can't help much in situations like these.
I just need any and all types of help to get them up in the mornings without having it turn into a nightmare please.
