big+backpackToday’s children have the overflowing paperwork and bulging day planners of pint-sized CEOs. And organizing those activities and assignments takes capable assistants: Mom and Dad.

“Without parental intervention, virtually all elementary school children, and many middle and high school youths, will be unable to manage the flow of information from school to home and back again,” said Dr. Anne Rambo, associate professor of family therapy at Nova Southeastern University in Florida and author of the book “I Know My Child Can Do Better!”
Institute a daily backpackunpacking ritual, she advises. Sit down with the child after school and sort through all the contents, putting them in one of six piles: trash, supplies, books, things to keep such as graded papers, longterm assignments such as instructions for a book report due next month, and shortterm assignments such as homework due the next day.

bookshelfMost Americans accumulate books, CDs, and DVDs, but many adults with ADD are plagued by the endless clutter that these items create.

Books on the shelves, in the closets and in the basement that were (maybe) read once and forgotten about. CDs in the rack, in the car and under the couch that make you cringe when you look at them because you can’t believe you actually listened to that music at one time. And DVDs that you forgot you even owned! Read more

August De-Clutter Challenge – Day 14

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

beforeNot only should this two hour de-clutter qualify as my last four for the week, but it should win me a prize for the weirdest de-clutter project. I de-cluttered my youngest son’s head.:)

My youngest had major cranial surgery when he was a baby and he has a scar from ear to ear across the top of his head. In an attempt to minimize that, he started growing dread-lock at the age of two. My husband joined in as an act of solidarity and support. You’d think this would be a care-free style, but they need regular maintenance to keep them lookin spiffy. Guess who gets that job?
