Training your kids to organise paperwork at home
It should involve all old paperwork that they do not require anymore but may come in handy by kid’s junior in grade to them. You can also utilize this opportunity in adding any old books or notes you want to get rid of but someone else may need it.
If parenting is not hard enough, training your children to stay organised is harder. Every school year brings with it a plethora of books, worksheets, scrapbooks and so on. Every year, there is a new mess to tackle as if your own is not enough already. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you train your children earlier on so that they are equipped with these organisation skills which will help them later on in life. The first step in cleaning up paperwork related mess is to sit your child with you in the beginning of every new academic year and make them separate all of their paperwork into three piles:
Keepers: Ask your children to put all the paperwork that they need for the upcoming year in this bundle. It involves old worksheets, assignments and reference books or atlas books they might require in the future.
Donations: It should involve all old paperwork that they do not require anymore but may come in handy by kid’s junior in grade to them. You can also utilize this opportunity in adding any old books or notes you want to get rid of but someone else may need it.
Recycling: Teach your kids the importance of staying neat and tidy and avoid useless hoarding of paper. This bundle should contain all unnecessary paperwork which does not have any use to them or to anyone else. It should be given for recycling to avoid wastage of paper.
After all of the paperwork is divided into these three sections, you will only be left with the ‘keepers’. Now, your next task becomes easier.
