Getting Your Kids' Papers Under Control: Landing Zone

Have a landing place for your kids' book bags and papers. A hook and an envelope or a bin can be a simple solution. Work with your kids to remember that this is where their book bags lives once homework is done and you’ll have to train them to put their papers and agendas in the bin. Teaching them responsibility for their belongings at an early age (and later ones too!) will be a great service to your children. You can even work their kids storage area into your family command center
