  • Some kids stay organized. Some don't. If the nine year old wants to do something, s/he cleans up first. Things will stay neat for half a day tops.

  • I know for my kids it was making sure they had a place for everything. They cleaned their room with help and we labeled things so they never had to guess were something was. If it does not get put back in the correct place then it is their problem.

    As far as school both of my older children have planners and calendars. They put all their school work and projects that are do in these planners. Their after school activities are also put in these so they know what it going on.

    Sometimes will all this it still does not work. It is a start but I do believe that they need to take some responsibility for things.

    Good Luck
