The messes that kids make can certainly grow quickly, especially if the only one responsible for picking up after them is you. Here at the Corpus Christi movers, we’ve gathered some expert advice on how to clean with kids, and how to engage them in the process. Read on!
Establishing cleaning routines for children at a young age is a great way to get them into good habits for life. Here are some things to keep in mind:
1. Have realistic expectations. Your children aren’t motivated at the thought of having a perfectly organized closet, nor should you expect them to. Keeping tasks small and easy will make them feel cleaning is associated with accomplishment, something everyone loves!
2. Make it a game. See how much can be done in an hour—you’ll challenge them! If you have multiple children, motivate them by a trip to the ice cream parlor—the one who cleans the most in the hour gets an extra topping.
3. Make sure they have space to work with. Shelves, drawers and tables need to be available as a place to store items.
4. Complement them on a job well done!
