Kid's outgrow their rooms almost as fast as they outgrow their clothes. Not the physical space but its storage capacity and . Interests and hobbies change, more and more stuff comes and in most cases, very little goes out. They may outgrow their toys but they aren't always willing to part with them. And, although a juvenile train border works well in a three year old boy's room, your eight year old hockey fanatic is getting a little tired of falling asleep with the little engine that could. To create functional and age appropriate room you need to take into account not only your child's personality and their current interests but also what type of organizational system that will work in both their favor and yours. One that your child can easily stay on top of and one that keeps you off their back.
First, we must have our own organizing act together in order to assist our children with theirs. Children learn what they live. They model what they see. How can we teach our children something we couldn't be bothered to do for ourselves?The key is to become your child's organizational consultant. Acting as their guide, survey what's working and what's not. To find an organizational system that matches her schedule and activity level consider your child's lifestyle. Does she play mostly in or out of her room? Where does she do her homework?Organizing kid rooms effectively is all about organizing with your children instead of for them. By becoming a united force you have a greater chance of devising an organizational system that will work.
