Keeping them tidy is an ongoing issue for the majority of us. And organization? It is not some inborn trait that you are born with or not born with. Of course, some people are naturally more organized; just as we differ in all traits and abilities.
But organization is also a skill that can be taught. And a habit that can be developed. Just like learning to ride a bike, swim, or skate can be taught; and like exercise, fitness, and healthy eating can all become important daily habits; so too organization can become part of our lives. And from that point, it becomes part of our children’s lives.
To help our children become skilled in organization means that we first have to provide them with an organized environment.
