Like A Boss Series = Run your home like a BOSS! Less stress and tips and tricks to help along the way.
Keeping your kids organized does not have to be a chore.
In fact, kids love to help no matter what age. They need to understand the lesson of accountability.
Teaching them personal accountability is so important. We as parents have to nurture them however that does not mean we have to do everything for them.
Sure do I give in and help when I’ve asked for the hundredth time to clean up their toys, yes I do. BUT I no longer let them stand there watching me as that teaches them nothing.
I hold them accountable! I encourage to keep going we are almost done. They need to feel a sense of pride when a job is well done.
Keeping your kids organized does not have to be daunting or hard at all. It’s the simple things you can do to help them start off on a good foot.
Smarter Ways To Make Your Kids Organized Without Yelling
Give Them The Tools
By purchasing simple plastic drawers and using labels (pictures for children that can not read yet) has become a staple in my home. I have them for LEGO’s, crayons, trucks you get the picture. Everything has a home. It will become easier for your child to identify that things have a place to go when it is time to clean up.
Assign Chore Charts and Checklists
Chore charts are great for kids. It gives them the visual list of what needs to get done each day and helps them stay on task. They will have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed what is expected. Start out small if they are not used to chore charts and grow the list from there.
Get Ready The Night Before
We talked about last week that I have a nighttime routine that keeps me more organized. Make a nighttime routine for the kids. They will learn to know what they need to do before they go to bed making mornings a breeze. Keep it simple with bath, pick up toys, pick out clothes and read a book before bed. I have been doing this for years and it works like clockwork.
Making your kids organized is all about your help. Show them this is what is expected and make it a routine for them.
