Hi HTA Families,

One of the many questions I receive from parents is how to help their
children become organized. I spotted this article below and thought this
would definitely be beneficial to parents and students who are having a
difficult time with organizational skills.

How Do You Help a Kid Who Is Disorganized & Forgetful?
lorem ipsum issue #, date
By Michele Borba, Ed.D., GalTime Parenting Pro
Monday, August 30, 2010

The secret to teaching organizational skills is to take on just one troubling issue at a time, find a simple solution that
fits your child, and then stick to it until that new organization system becomes habit. Here are a few solutions to
boost your kid’s organizational skills...
1. Stop rescuing. Your first step is often the hardest (but most important). If you really, really want your child
to learn how to be better organized then you must stop being his personal assistant. So take a vow that you
will teach your child organization skills, and then once he learns them you will step back and make him be
responsible for any consequences (like missing a deadline, losing a library book, misplacing sports gear).
Better he learn the lesson now than later.

2. Create a place for everything. Your next step is to help your kid organize what she has in order to make
things easier to find and put away. Don’t go getting crazy here. Just identify the “code red” areas that usually
cause the stress and argument, and find a simple solution. Here are three common organizational problems
and a few solutions. The trick is to find what works for your child and stick to that solution.

Problem: Can’t find her shoes and jackets. Solution: Clean out the closet and then purchase a few inexpensive
closet organizers so she can find and put things away quicker.
Problem: Misplacing school papers and supplies. Solution: Put a hook by the front door to hang the backpack
the second she comes home. All homework goes in and then out of that backpack.
Problem: Missing sports gear. Solution: Place small plastic barrels in the garage with labels (picture form for
younger kids) designating the type of equipment.
3. Reduce clutter. Kids are more organized with less clutter, so now is the time to go through drawers, closets,
toys, and equipment barrels together and help him eliminate those unnecessary extras. Throw away all those
never used or broken things, and try to do so every six to eight week. Then employ these clutter reducers so
your child’s room or homework area at least appears more organized:
Rotate toys. Come on, your kid doesn’t really play with all those toys, right? So put some of those away and
pull them out again in a few weeks. Not only will they seem brand new, but it will also reduce the
clutter. Make a rule that when you pull toys out, you always store others in their place.
Hold a garage sale. Here is your time for your kid to make a little extra cash by selling his old toys, clothes
and books. Hold a family garage sale. Put your kids in charge of making fliers, setting up cash boxes,
and displaying sale items.
Donate to charity. Give your child a box and tell her to stock it with gently used possessions. Then help her
deliver the box to a Goodwill store or charity of her choice.
Under-bed storage. For those occasionally used things, get storage bins that can slide under your child’s bed.
“Out of sight, out of mind” is the organizational strategy. The less seen, the less she can mess up and
lose.

4. Set a clean up routine. Once your child is more organized, the trick is to
keep to that system. The best way to do so is by enforcing a quick once or SPIRIT
twice a week clean-up brigade policy. Just be realistic and don’t expect
your child’s room to pass the “white gloves” inspection test. Instead, be

achieved that feat by designating Sunday as the family’s “clean the

5. Boost organization skills. Now it’s time to take on the challenge of you want to be

system, so what works for you may not work for your child. Also, don’t get Friday 1/28: Crazy

because it looks good. The trick is to find a simple system that helps your
child, and then continue to help your child use that strategy until the SPIRIT WEEK

only what helps your kid. Here are a few school organizational ideas:

spot, such as the kitchen, so you can refer to it.
Try picture charts. Take photographs of your child doing essential tasks (brushing teeth,
hanging up backpack, putting away sports gear) and turn those into a reminder chart.
Pictures and images can help a visual child.
Use checklists. List reoccurring tasks (such as spelling test, library book return, soccer practice),
print off the list and then have your child turn it into a weekly (or daily) check-off list. You
can also slip a checklist into a plastic sleeve or see-through freezer bag so your child can
mark off reoccurring items with a grease pencil and then erase and reuse the list again
and again.
Post deadlines. Encourage your child to write deadlines on post its and place them on a visible
spot like his bathroom mirror, bedroom door or by a nightstand. Buy your child a small bulletin
board to hang on the outside of his bedroom door so he sees the reminder ASAP. The trick is to
teach him to always put the reminder in the same place each and every time.

Thank you to all the students who came in


to take the H.S.A. and thank you to all the
parents for making the commitment to
bring your students in for testing.
