When my children were very young, they wouldn’t get up to get ready for school. I would pull the curtains aside to let morning light in. I would give them a peck on the cheeks, and say, “Rise and shine”, in a sing song voice.
It would take repeated efforts on my part to wake them up. Once they started their morning prayers, they began waking on their own. I stopped saying rise and shine, and totally forgot saying that.
