Before anything, I want to draw attention to some underrated yet common reasons as to why it may be a tad more difficult for your child to keep his/her environment tidy and in order when compared to other kids. One or more of the reasons mentioned below could be his/her handicap towards completing this type of chores at home or at school.
- Your child may just be growing and developing. Every kid and his/her development vary from the rest. Children’s planning and organizing skills tend to develop at different ages and speeds. If this is the case, give your kid some time and space.
- Sleep plays an important role in our daily lives and our functionality. Sleep routines and the quality of your child’s sleep should be maintained at a healthy level for her/him to focus and embrace his/her daily chores or responsibilities. If sleeps right, your kid will be less aggressive, less impulsive, and much more focused.
- Your child may be facing trouble in his/her executive functioning. Executive functioning is the set of skills including working memory, flexible thinking and self-control. We possess these skills to use them in our daily lives, at work, at learning or simply in managing our regular routine. For further hints on how to detect setbacks in your child’s executive functioning, please get in contact with a pediatrician for a healthier result.
- Children of adequate ages, who find it difficult to cope with their daily chores or responsibilities are suspected to have ADHD. Children with ADHD usually tend to struggle with executive functioning skills and therefore once again, we suggest that you see a professional regarding these matters. We are here to create awareness only, not diagnose you or your child.
