Organizing study environment
My high school kids are getting ready to go back to school. I want to create a better homework environment for them and also try to tackle their front door clutter before it overtakes my living room. What can I do to make my kid’s school life more productive and my home less of a mess when school starts?
Educational tools have certainly changed in the last decade. The old three foot desks aren’t large enough to hold the computers, printers, cell phones and oh yes, the books, that are a daily part of your teenager’s school life.
What kids need now is at least six feet of desk surface. This space will accommodate their computer and leave a large open surface for book studies, homework and special projects.
A small drawer for tape, scissors and pens along with a file drawer will complete the study area. Consider teaching your kids a filing system this year. They will use this skill for years to come.
