Does Your Child Have Bad Organization Skills?

bad organizational skills

Organization is one of the key skills children need to learn in order to achieve success in the classroom and beyond. But for many kids, healthy organization skills do not come naturally. For these children, poor organization skills make managing day-to-day responsibilities a struggle, as they often begin tasks unprepared, lose track of what they are working on, or fail to gather the appropriate tools for the job at hand.

Observe these common signs of poor organization to see if your child may be displaying some unhealthy habits.

Does Your Child Have Bad Organization Skills?

Does your child:

  • Misplace homework before turning it in?
  • Tend to have a very messy room?
  • Have disorganized backpacks, desks and school lockers?
  • Frequently fail to find clothing, sporting equipment, or school supplies when they are needed?
  • Begin tasks — such as homework, recipes, or chores — without having the proper materials needed?
  • Struggle to work systematically on longer projects, such as writing an essay or book report?
  • Fail to keep track of commitments, homework, and responsibilities?

If you answered yes to two or more of these symptoms, you may want to take steps to start helping your child build better Organizations skills.
