Make It to Practice on Time, Every Time!
Here’s an easy, kid-friendly system called See It! Say It! Do It! Organize It! developed by Colorado vision therapists to help their young patients get organized. Not only did it keep the kids on track with their therapy, parents found that it made things like homework and getting ready for school and activities easier and stress free. Best of all, the kids do it for themselves!
The See It! Say It! Do It! Organize It! system is simple:
- See it. Guide your child through a mental movie of preparing for practice. What do you pack in your hockey bag? Where is your stick? Your skates? Do you have a snack? How long does it take to drive to the rink? How long does it take to get dressed? How does it feel when you step onto the ice?
- Say it. Help your child make a powerful declaration, such as “I am an all-star because I’m on time for practice!” Saying it—and believing it—helps makes it reality.
- Do it. It’s not a to-do list. It’s an action plan! Let your child write down all the steps from his or her mental movie. Leave space to note completion and enter encouragement and praise.
- Ta-dah! Promise your child a treat when he or she realizes the goal. Perhaps game night or a sleepover with a friend.
