The tears, the yelling, the begging, the pleading, and the endless negotiating. No, I'm not talking about a scene from a soap opera, I'm talking about the real life drama that ensues when trying to get your kids out the door.

It's a battle that can break the spirit of just about any parent— especially this one! No matter how much time you allow for you and your kids to get out of the house, it's never enough, never easy.

Whether it's a jacket that just won't go on right or a shoe shoved on the wrong foot, what seems like simple tasks to you and I can be downright hard for your little one to master.

But sweat, swear and stress no more—Willie and I have a few simple solutions that will help lessen the blow to help you get out the front door faster. From the jacket flip trick to the shoe sticker solution, be sure to check out our latest Parental Guidance episode because we might shave a few minutes off your morning routine and spare you a few tears as well.
