How many of your child’s water bottles, or caps, or toys, have never made their way back home from school? How many times has your child called you from school, asking you to urgently bring her the homework, or PE kit, she had forgotten at home? Well, probably too many times!! This blog post highlights a few systems and habits you can help your child build upon over the years to make her more organised and independent.

I have a love for books, I have always had. One of my dreams as a child was to own a bookshelf full of books that would be mine. My dream quickly came true, but before I knew it, my bookshelf was quite full. I knew I had to set some limits and let go of some of my books to make space for new ones.
