Try a walk around the room on your knees (or better yet, enlist your 12-year old). From this perspective, you’ll soon find out what’s hard to reach. Make it easy for your kids to pick up after playtime or hang up a sweater by lowering hooks, bars and shelves. Stepstools can help, but for safety and ease, lower is better. Consider doubling up on clothing bars-one low and within your child’s reach, the other higher for special clothes requiring your help.
