It can be a challenge to get kids on board to organizing their rooms and following an organizing system that you have set up for yourself. But there is a way to observe your child’s habits and how they move in their space to come up with a system just for them.
In this episode I talk about how I observed my daughter’s habits and how she moved in her space to come up with different organizing systems to use that were tailored to her. I also share with you how you can do the same and what to do if the first time fails. Listen in by clicking the button above. I also list some of the highlights below.
Using Kids Habits:
- Observe how they move around their space.
- Observing how your child moves around their room and space will give you a good indication to where they pile things and where they like to put things. From there you can come up with a great organizing system that is tailored to their habits.
- Stick with the new system for at least 21 days.
- Don’t give up after two weeks or two days just because your child is getting lazy with the system. It takes 21 days to form a habit.
- If it doesn’t work go back to the drawing board.
- If after trying out the new system for a while you see it just isn’t working then get rid of the system and start with something else. This is trial and error. You want the system to work for your child in the long run.
- Make it easy for your kids to put things back.
- Kids won’t organize or put things back if it is hard. Make it easy for them to put things where they belong.
