Organisation & Self-discipline

Organisation and Self-Discipline


Organisational skills have a life-long impact on an individual's personality and their success in the adult world. Teaching a child to be organised is one of the best ways to set them up for academic success, helping them to become independent and develop critical thinking skills.


Teachers and parents play a significant role in teaching organisational skills. As children move through the school they will increasingly learn how to become less reliant upon an adult to ensure they have everything they need and meet deadlines independently.


Self-discipline is about being able to regulate yourself and it too develops over the years with the biggest changes happening between the ages of 3 and 7. Research suggests that by fostering self-discipline in children, they are less likely to experience anxiety and depression as they grow up and in adulthood.
