Some tasks are less important than others and could be dropped if the child is running late.
Yes, like playtime! This is an issue for us in the AM, because if he has enough time to play, after playtime there are a couple tasks he needs prompting for via the morning routine. I have my own I created using the template as a start.
Debbie, were you setting up play time as an activity separate from the dynamic reward activity at the end of the routine? I ask because the dynamic reward time is essentially "skipped" when earned time is zero.
