Due to the disorderly life in the family, conflicts are incessant in many homes. In fact, inculcating the habit of order in children is not as difficult, complex and impossible as it seems. Order is a need for people, it relaxes people. He feels safe and peaceful in that order, the system that works regularly. It is the same for children. They are adversely affected by an environment of chaos, an untidy, messy room. If children are taught to be organized in accordance with their age and without missing periods of sensitivity, they will maintain their sense of order throughout their lives.

The greater the conflict, the greater the disorder!

However, order is such a spiritual achievement that as conflict increases, so does disorder. A child’s ability to regulate his own life is only possible if that child’s emotional world is regular.

On the other hand, order is a state of need that arises in children at certain periods. If parents know the periods when this need arises in children and guide them to meet it, such a child can make regular life a style for himself without any difficulty. As a parent, you should set an example for your children. Children should always see the house in order because they know how tidy it really is, even if there are little messes in between. This is especially true for their parents’ belongings. Children are natural imitators, so when you edit or remove something, it’s helpful to say it out loud.

Before removing a new toy, tell it to remove the others!

The most important point here is that children learn from the concept of objects that have a certain place and to gather gradually at the end of the day rather than pack up. Express why this is why when your child wants to play with a new toy, he should remove the others.

Prepare the environment for order and help them

Your child should have an easy-to-reach hanger for their coat and a place to put their shoes. Thus, children can enter the house in an orderly manner without throwing their belongings around.

Have playgrounds

The easiest way to avoid clutter is to encourage kids to play in their bedrooms. However, doing this can be a little tricky. It still helps them keep the toys in their room. Also, the fewer toys there are, the easier it will be to store and organize them.

Things can get a little tricky if there is no place to store toys, if the storage space is out of reach or out of your child’s use. You can get boxes for it. If you want to be more organized, you can stick photos of the toys in each drawer or box. This way, your child can easily find which toy to put where.

Make positive statements about the layout

Express how nice it is when a room is clean and tidy. Thus, the child can act more consciously about the order.

Although arguing with the child, humiliating, oppressing and punishing him creates a temporary order, when viewed in the long term, it deeply distorts the child’s sense of order.

The order that children create after adolescence is not an internal order, but an order in order not to appear disorderly to the outside world.

It is the order he tries to achieve with the feeling of “embarrassment” that occurs when his friends enter his room and his relatives see his underwear and pajamas on the floor, which is a very tiring effort.

We see that there is no need for parents to conflict with their children. If a child is disorganized, it is not his fault, but the result of not being given enough guidance during his developmental stages.
