Organized children

School is starting and NOW is the time to get your kids organized. What are their priorities? Homework, rest, exercise, recreation, nutrition, and time to socialize with family and friends. Do they have these priorities scheduled? Even young children can take responsibility for their schedules and making choices. You can teach your children to do this by first, scheduling time to sit down and review their priorities. Giving them structured choices builds their investment in the process and gives them a sense of independence. Review their schedules as they use them and tweek, as necessary. Becoming more organized is a life skill that serves us all well.
