Trust me, it reminds of school and disciplines. Hooks at different levels One row of hooks letwill be at the height of your children - so they will gradually get used to hanging clothes in place on their own. The second level should be done at a height of about one meter. When the little ones are old enough, the bottom hooks can be used to store spare gloves and hats, and raincoats and coats will cover them.
