Create Kid Power

Children love responsibility. Invite them to participate when doing Maeve’s Method in the home. Ask a child to show you what they like, what they don’t like, accept their answers and thank them heartily for their input.

Empower your kids with responsibility and watch them get excited for their weekly home and school routines. Kids love to demonstrate how helpful they can be, so you’ll be reinforcing valuable lessons about helping and sharing. Teach your kids to make their beds or set out their breakfast bowl. Give them one job to call their own during your weekly routine.

Learn to organize with your kids, not around them – especially in their rooms. Make them part of the solution, and watch for positive behavioral changes around the home.
