The peace and order that organization can bring is just as important to the children of a house. They take cues from parents’ feelings and feel at ease when the parent does. Helping them to understand principles of organization is important for them to know how to navigate a complex society. Children as young as three can understand the idea of putting things back where they were found if a parent takes time to teach it. I had one family whose daughter was as enthusiastic as the parents. She was quick to join the positive feeling her parents felt by learning how to gain some control over their space.
