Just in time for spring cleaning, Netflix released the second season of “Get Organized with the Home Edit”—the popular reality series featuring viral home-organization experts Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin.
Organizers for stars like Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pratt, Clea and Joanna’s three-step organization system clearly works:
The edit is the clean-out. Getting rid of anything you don’t need anymore. Then you put everything in its own category. For example, for a pantry, your categories would be things like “pasta and grains,” “snacks,” and “cereal.” Lastly, contain. This is when you find a home for all of your stuff, whether that’s in a plastic bin, a drawer, or on a shelf.
We all know organizing our homes is necessary every once in a while, but have you ever thought about organizing your parenting? What strategies do you have that no longer work? What needs to be…edited?
Just like phase one of Clea and Joanna’s organization system, I find that many parents need to assess their parenting styles and strategies once a year and decide what can stay and what needs to go.
Parenting is hard, I know. Just getting through the day can feel like a challenge. The last thing you want to do after a tough day of parenting is to think about parenting. But being intentional about how you parent your child is critical.
