Teaching organization is one of the most important things you can do for your child.

Therefore, the key is to make it easy, fast, and fun.  It’s important for children to manage their own things. Providing your children with responsibility for their toys, clothes, and rooms teaches them essential life skills.  The topic is broad, so it has been broken down into a series of blog posts that provide tips to assist you and your children in becoming more organized.

Here are ten general tips to organize your kids.

  1. It is important to set up your home so that they can put their things away and find them when they need them.
  2. Show them how to do it.
  3. Give them the responsibility of keeping their things under control.
  4. Rather than doing things for them that they can accomplish themselves, guide them.
  5. Assign each child a color and mark or buy items like bins, scissors, and hangers within each color for that child.
  6. For backpacks and coats, install hooks everywhere the kids enter the house.
  7. Practice removing shoes at the front door to minimize dirt in the house.
  8. Set up routines for bedtime, homework, bath time, dinner hour, etc.
