Get Your Toddlers Involved (It’s Never Too Early!)
When you have toddlers, it doesn’t take much for bedrooms and common living areas to get messy and look like a total disaster. You might even think the Tasmanian Devil lives there. When everyone pitches in, no matter how quiet and serene or loud and hectic your home may be, the same rule applies: when you have a healthy home, you have a happy home. Put all that energy to work for you! Teach them to be responsible for one small chore, such as putting their toys away after they have finished playing with them or straightening up their bed or putting away their folded clothes. You will be amazed at the time this will save you. while teaching your children to help. Make it fun!
Implement a Reward System
No matter what age your family members may be, everyone could use a reason to stay on track. Go to your local school supply store and buy some markers, stickers and a large sheet of cardboard or whiteboard. After you have made a llist of the chores you need done each week, assign a family members name to a few of those chores. Make sure to keep the chores age appropriate. By making sure the chores assigned are age appropriate you will avoid frustration over the task at hand being too difficult to complete.
Come up with a reward for a week’s worth of chores accomplished. Let the kids participate in deciding what reward they would like. This will give them a sense of belonging and take pride in the chores toaccomplish. Implement a reward system that again is age appropriate and that motivates your family to do a great job taking care of their personal belongings, and you’ll have a family that enjoys cleaning together.
