Though much has changed in our children’s lives since we were their age, much has stayed the same. Our children deal with disorganized bedrooms, poor time management, lack of discipline, and stress.
As parents, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of getting our children to school or activities that we forget about the ongoing challenges they struggle with on a daily basis. Evidence shows that children can dramatically improve their school performance by becoming better organized. There are several important areas where you can help your children get organized and keep their home and school lives running smoothly, setting them up for success later in life:
• Handling transitions: nighttime to morning; morning to school; afternoon to evening; evening to bedtime
• Creating order in your child’s world: playrooms, bedrooms, and keepsakes
• Teaching responsibility for completing chores
• Organizational and time management skills needed to succeed in school and life
