You Can Motivate Your Family To Cleanup

When you teach your kids to clean, you’re not only getting your own house in order but you’re also preparing them to survive out in the world. That is the number one role we have as parents: Get out kids ready to leave the nest. Simple life skills like doing laundry and cooking will make them a lot more independent when the time is right. Of course, for right now it’s about getting those tasks done in a timely fashion.

Cleaning house needs to be mandatory. You might find some siblings trading off job assignments. That’s fine as long as the work gets done. It will help to set a schedule of what is expected every week. Kids should not only keep their rooms clean but also share in the cleaning of the rest of the house. It helps to establish a “no dumping” policy. Shoes, jackets, sweaters, hats and backpacks all have a place and that place isn’t the floor.

It also helps to give age appropriate tasks. You don’t want your four-year-old mowing the lawn but they can certainly put away their toys after every play session. After all, if they took them out, then they should know where they belong.
