3 Tips For Keeping Your Child Organized Over The Summer
1. Create A Daily Calendar– Make list of what activities your child has each day and make sure to go through it every morning. This way your child will continue to feel like there is still structure for them even when they are not in school.
2.Be Prepared– If you have a child who goes to camp, day care or Grandma’s house, prepare for the activity the night before. A good way to do this is to help your child lay out their clothes the evening before so that it is easier for them to get ready in the morning. For older kids, have them become responsible for their own belongings. For example, the night before an activity have your child put sunblock, bathing suits, towels etc in their bag on their own. When they come home from the day, make sure they unpack their lunch and give you any wet clothes or anything that needs to come out of the bag.
3. Create Checklists–Create a checklist for chores. Depending on how old your child is, see if you can have your child participate in a small chore on a daily basis. This can range from making their bed, putting their dishes in the sink or even trying to use a fork or spoon on their own. Your child will learn to feel good about him or her self when they are able to put a check next to the box when they have completed the task.
Enjoy the summer and stay organized!!!
