Steps to help your kids get organized before school

Here are some helpful steps that can help parents get their kids organized before school starts.

  • Establish a routine: Establishing a consistent routine is essential for helping children get organized. This includes setting a regular bedtime, wake-up time, and mealtime. Having a predictable routine helps children feel more in control and less stressed.
  • Create a designated study area: Creating a designated study area where your child can do their homework and study is crucial for helping them stay organized. This could be a desk in their room or a table in a common area. Make sure the area is quiet and free of distractions.
  • Use a planner or calendar: Encourage your child to use a planner or calendar to keep track of their assignments, tests, and extracurricular activities. This will help them stay organized and avoid last-minute cramming.
  • Create a system for papers: Papers can quickly pile up and become overwhelming for kids. Creating a system for organizing papers, such as a filing cabinet or folders, can help children stay on top of their assignments and prevent important papers from getting lost.
  • Set reminders: Help your child set reminders for important tasks, such as remembering to bring home their textbooks or turning in a permission slip. This can be done through a phone app, a whiteboard, or sticky notes.
  • Pack backpacks the night before: Encourage your child to pack their backpacks the night before to avoid rushing in the morning. Make sure they have all the necessary supplies and textbooks for the next day.
  • Teach time-management skills: Time-management skills are essential for staying organized. Teach your child how to break down large assignments into smaller, manageable tasks and how to prioritize their time.

By following these steps, parents can help their children get organized before school starts and set them up for success throughout the school year.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
