Getting kids working is important and here are some tips to help:
- It’s important you help them out. Make sure and model what you want from them first, show them their expectations. Little one’s will probably need more help. Don’t get discouraged, they’ll eventually get it.
- Give Them Direction. We often Just yell to clean their rooms or wash dishes, but many times they don’t know where to start. It sounds silly but for some kids it’s important to break the tasks down. I have a couple of kids that actually need the task broken down like “pick up all the clothes”, then “Pick up the garbage. You’ll have better success this way.
- Assign Age-Appropriate Chores. This is key. You can’t expect a 5 year old to wash a car correctly but asking a 12 year old to do light dusting may be a waste of their abilities.
- Turn Cleaning Into a Game. Games are always funner, make it a competition if possible.
- Use Non toxic products:
After a dreary winter, I always look forward to the return of spring and getting the house in order. To me, a clean home begins with the products I use — so I’m always looking for ways to eliminate toxins in my cleaning routine. Especially if little hands will be helping. That’s why I love Mrs. Meyer’s spring scents: Mint, Peony, and Lilac. Most important I grab them at Grove Collaborative. This is perfect because I can simply order and their shipped to my home.
