What the Expert Says:

Not all kids are organized, and he may never be at the same neatness level as others. As a parent, it's just another skill to teach-- especially if it doesnt come naturally for him. You might require that he cleans it out once each week. His backpack may be a mess during the week, but if you get him in the habit of cleaning it out on the  weekend, it impact his organization over time.
