Children and Their Thinking Styles

When it comes to organizing with children, it not all about what works for the parents. Check out the book, Every Child Has a Thinking Style by Lanna Nakone, Professional Organizer and researcher in brain types. (She is also the author of Organizing for Your Brain Type).

She presents 4 distinct thinking types for children:

  1. Maintainer
  2. Harmonizer
  3. Innovator
  4. Prioritizer

Each thinking style has its own strengths, weaknesses and preferences. Nakone explains how parents can tailor’s a child’s environment so a child is comfortable and can reach their full potential.

Her book includes a quiz to determine your child's thinking style and ideas to help keep them focused and organized. Her website also has a quiz that parents can take. http://www.organizedworld.com/quiz.html
