Teach Every Family Member to Be Responsible For Their Own Belongings
In an early episode, one mom found herself in a frustrating cycle of clutter. She organized the entire house her way, but no one knew where anything was, so they'd have to constantly ask her for things. Worse, her kids didn't know how to keep it all organized in her style. Marie made it her mission to "teach the family how to be responsible with their own belongings." As she told them, "You're living together, so it's important for everyone to maintain their space, but not only that, to help each other as well."
Still, Marie didn't expect the kids to do it all on their own. She admitted that it's "perfectly understandable for [the parent] to help create their storage spaces." But whenever they ask her for something, instead of simply getting it for them, she said, "It's important that every time, you remind them where everything is so they start to learn."
