One of the best ways to give teens ownership and adult responsibilities is to let them keep track of their own important paperwork.
However, this can backfire when your teens are super busy and stressed or not naturally organised.
Instead – Set them up with their own file in your home office area, hardcopy and digital. They can still be responsible for saving, filing and returning their own documents to their own file.
They can keep certificates, licences, insurances, memberships and reports safely stored and easily retrievable, unlike the panicked search under the bed among sticky food wrappers and stinky socks!
They might even like to choose their own colour for their hardcopy folder.
