Early starts at distant work make for alarm clocks and morning rush in our house.
A 4 year old child and two adults have around an hour to get washed, dressed and fed to leave at 7am.
To my son there is no motive or reason to get ready in the morning - he claims not to be bothered by kindergarten, and doesn't appreciate the time pressure his parents feel.
As a rule, he will not dress himself, finds endless distractions, and generally tests his ability to say no ("get your clothes on, we have to go":"No"/"What are you going to put on first, pants or vest?":"Neither"), make noise and aggravate his parents. Normally this behaviour would put him on the naughty step for 4 minutes - this is the one thing we don't wish to do in the mornings as it makes us even later!
So, I"d like to hear tips/suggestions and experiences as to how you make a four-year old hurry up in the morning.*
I'm not sure my question was clear, so feel free to ask for clarification
*Obviously I'm aiming to avoid a shouting match/raising blood pressure/having to wake up even earlier - long working hours puts us all to bed later than we'd like, so I'd like to adapt the patterns we use in the family to ensure we all leave for work/kindergarten less flustered and on time!
