Order and children rarely go together. By cons, with a little patience and creativity you can minimize the mess, creating a system to measure them and reflects their personalities.

A room that resembles them

Young children develop a special attachment to their bedroom, as is often the only place they have the right to touch everything. It is therefore important to target their needs and tastes when it comes to organization.

# For longer lasting results, I strongly encourage you to involve your child even if it is preschool. Let them make decisions, that way you empower the process of organization and results. The principle is not to force your children to pick up because you just can not disorder, but rather teach them an organizational system. You become the “consultant”, use tact and diplomacy

# Children copy us. Start by organizing your room for a good example!

The steps

Step one: do the sorting. Please have bags or boxes that you will identify and use to

# Lay the broken things
# give or sell more toys or not used
# store the overflow or other things
# the remaining group


Remember that children can not be organized if their wardrobes and drawers overflowing! Therefore prune up!

Step two: Evaluate what stays and group them by categories and / or areas of activity such as sleep, clothing, toys, crafts, books, etc.

Step three: Give everything a place, a place of residence, a place where children will specifically store each object. To do this effectively, put yourself physically at the child. What is the optimal height for their things? Do the drawers are easy to open? Does the closet rod is available?

Some solutions

# The toy box is a quick fix to store toys, for since everything is stored against pell-mell, it is less convenient when it comes time to take them out. Give it a specific function. you could put large objects such as balls or blocks. Bring the safe hinges that lock.

# A small clothesline can serve as a bulletin board to display the latest masterpieces or photos of your toddler.

# Limit the number of toys in the room by placing them in a cupboard, the others may be stored elsewhere. Remember to group toys by categories, then label the plastic baskets of different sizes and colors in which you place the corresponding objects.

# To halt the loss of clothes lying on the floor, use hooks installed at the correct height, between 30 and 36 inches off the ground.

A little psycho!

# Be sure to encourage and reward them for their achievements.
# Remember these four words: repetition, consistency, consequences and rewards. They are the key to acquiring good habits.
# Help your kids keep all thanks to a small list of daily tasks that you will adapt according to their age and personality.

Tips and Tricks

# Create a memory box to keep drawing, writing books, etc. Each year, ask your child to choose some that are kept in this box.
# Provide a biennial screening to get rid of too small clothing and toys too. A good time to do this is after Christmas and after their birthday, because they will probably receive lots of new things. It will be easier to convince them to divest itself of certain objects.
# Do not overlook security in the bedroom of your little doors, windows, electrical outlets. Secure to wall furniture that can tip over, etc..
