Helping your child to avoid the wrinkled look

Although my two children are now 20 and 17 one is a Junior in College and the other is a Junior in High School I wanted to share something I discovered when they were quite young.
I wanted my kids to learn skills around the home which included taking care of their bedrooms and clothing. I would grow so frustrated to see them stuff freshly laundered clothes into their drawers. They were merciless! Perhaps you've observed the same techniques.
Because they were too young to noticed things like wrinkles, it didn't bother them to wear the result of their stuffing and cramming. In time I came to realize that my daughter preferred most of her clothing on hangers, including t-shirts. This was an easy alternative for me.
However, my son proved to be a little more challenging, until I decided to use his bookshelf to store his clothing. It was a light-bulb moment for all of us. All of a sudden, putting his clothes away became so much easier for him. The tug of war was over. I purchased a small basket to put his socks in; another one for his underwear. He is a very visual kid always has been and probably always will be and this "open" method proved to be just what he needed.
Don't be afraid to try different methods or processes when working with children. And remember that what works for one child may not work for another. They were created uniquely and that applies even to how they store their clothes!
All my best,
