In the meantime, you might want to keep reading for some helpful insight on kids and their organizing habits!
Clutter is basically stuff that has no home, right? You can involve your child in the organization process by allowing them to determine storage locations. Remember, your child opens the closet doors, and looks down and sees the floor, and looks UP and sees the hanging bar. Where do you think the stuff in their hands is going to go? ON THE FLOOR!
Involving your children in decisions will empower them. Be sure to be considerate of your child’s developmental level. Younger children forget about objects if they can't see them. Therefore, open containers and exposed shelving will help your kids put away and find objects. Children that are three to five years of age enjoy independently getting dressed. So, use low hanging closet rods, shelves, and baskets that they can reach. Younger school age children may benefit from labels in order to correctly put away objects. There is hope!
And, we are here to help you.
If you just can't get a grip on your child’s belongings, give us a call. If you're still using a traditional rod-with-shelf-above closet, give us a call. Your children don't need a walk-in closet just because they have piles of clothing, toys and clutter. More space is not always the answer to the problem. The answer is occasional purging of broken and unused items, and most importantly, better use of their space. And this applies whether the space is a reach-in closet, playroom, or any other storage area. If you call or visit us today, we will help get your family on their way to being neater and more organized!
