Let's face it, kids love races. And in doses, competition is healthy, especially if it gets you out the door on time in the morning.
Save your nagging mom voice. Tell your darling, "Bet I can get ready quicker than you!" and watch in awe as he scrambles out of his pyjamas and into his school clothes at breakneck speed. Ah, you won—again. Be sure to feign disappointment at losing the race.
