Let’s Get Organised!
September 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
If kids don’t have the processes needed for independence, they will always be dependent on others regardless of their ability and skills.
If you want kids to become independent you need to teach them skills so they can become self-sufficient.
Dressing yourself, making a snack, looking up a bus time table and making a CV are examples of self-sufficiency skills that are relevant for different ages.
Awareness, teaching and opportunity are the main requirements for kids to pick up these skills. They need to be aware of what can be done. They need to acquire the skills – some take more teaching than others. They also need the opportunity to put things into practice.
Today we are going to help your kids develop processes necessary to become independent. They will learning three processes today:
- Planning ahead
- Procedural thinking
Each will bring home some tools to continue to use as they build helpful organisational habits. Some days are easier when we have someone to help, so they’ll bring home some helpful tips for you so you can support them with their new routines.
