    I think that if a child understands the important of every task accomplished in the morning, when they are older they will most likely adapt to these themselves from what they've seen their elders do... However if natural learning doesn't come into play with your child, making them help you make their breakfast and dress correctly are great examples of setting a 'morning routine'.

    Don't forget getting up on time!!!

    Wow, this is a good question. Most parents have trouble getting their kids out of bed in the morning, especially as they get into their tween years. Getting them to dress themselves, eat breakfast, feed the family pet are just a few suggestions. And, I can only think of perhaps some time of chart with a set prize as goals are reached.  For example, their favorite dinner if they do their chores without asking for the whole week. I would praise them once in awhile as they do it without asking and certainly reinforce it as it is completed.  Discussion on how it helps them to develop self-discpline and contributes to the entire family would also help establish a sense of satisfaction.

    I had no charts or graphs for my sons, 31 (with autism, working part time, rides horses and bowls) and a son, 28, who was in the Navy, is a grad of NY's Culinary Institute of America and is full time in a D.C. restaurant as a front server/future wine expert.)  Both saw what I did and learned by routine to help out.  I did not praise, but simply thanked.  I used words like "mature" and "helpful."  I never spoke of myself in the third person either.  I said what was needed and they did it.  I took Systematic Training For Effective Parenting classes and Parent Effectiveness Training classes, too.  I believe both helped both my sons individually to do what was needed in the morning, the afternoon and the evening.  For instance, at 7, my youngest son had his own key to get in my Mother's door.  Each had to carry a lunch and put bookbags by the door.  I was/am their Mother.  We're all in this thing called life together.
