Help Your Child Get Organized
It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
For kids, all tasks can be broken down into a 1-2-3 process.
- Getting organized means a kid gets where he or she needs to be and gathers the supplies needed to complete the task.
- Staying focused means sticking with the task and learning to say “no” to distractions.
- Getting it done means finishing up, checking your work, and putting on the finishing touches, like remembering to put a homework paper in the right folder and putting the folder inside the backpack so it’s ready for the next day.
Once kids know these steps — and how to apply them — they can start tackling tasks more independently. That means homework, chores, and other tasks will get done with increasing consistency and efficiency. Of course, kids will still need parental help and guidance, but you probably won’t have to nag as much.
