Ep 115: Teenage Room Organization The Mom's Organization Motivation Podcast

    • Home & Garden

If it’s time to add some organization to your (almost) teenager’s room, I’ve got some suggestions on this week’s episode!
Of course I’m using the 3 E’s to keep this simple, but I’m also hopping up on my soapbox a couple of times to explain why it’s so important to give your teen a space that reflects their style and needs.
Between hormones, growth spurts, and epic mood swings you might want to close the door to their room and open it right before they head off to college, but resist that urge! We’ve got to give them grace, validate their feelings, and offer them a space for flexibility, control, rest, safety, and hosting their friends
If this is a tall order for you to do with your teen, don’t hesitate to call an expert! They’ll get way more accomplished in a shorter amount of time, and that takes so much pressure off of you.
 
Highlights from this episode:
(03:19) Taking a teenager’s room from crappy to happy
(06:57) Validate your kids’ needs
(12:25) It’s their space, so hear them out!
(16:03) Avoid the dreaded dead zone
(21:54) Change is hard
(24:24) Floating shelves and other hacks
(29:29) Teens have different needs
 
Mentioned on this episode:
Ep 1: The 3 E’s Philosophy 
Ep 7: The Essential Purge
Ep 6: Maximize Your Vertical Space
Ep 105: The Dead Zone
 
The Container Store for clear deep sweater boxes, rolling art cart, floating shelves, Poppin brand desktop organizers, Command hooks and wall mounts.
I hope this episode helps you and your teen or tween feel supported in organizing and styling their room so it’s a reflection of them and serves you all in your home.
