Barbies in the Horse Bin ~ Living Better with Organized Children
The single biggest mistake that parents make when teaching their children organizational skills is this: It is EASIER to do things yourself! You know this, I know this yet we cannot seem to stop doing it. You as the adult, do things faster, more efficiently, better and with less mess. Additionally, if you do it yourself, you do not have to listen to complaining, backtalk, sighing, be the recipient of an overly dramatic eye roll or put up with a tantrum. There are a multitude of reasons for doing things yourself, too many to mention, yet there is just one reason to stop: you are doing more harm than good.
