Tip 1: Explain the need for cleaningBusy with the daily hassles, we are often forced to go quickly. Behind, the children must follow. In the morning, we ask them to hurry to get dressed, in the evening to hurry to brush their teeth. In between, we add a bunch of constraints that they understand more or less well.Comprehension , however, this is one of the essential keys to communicating in the family. Cleaning remains a chore, whatever the age. Both the child and the adult see no fun in it (but that can change, as we'll see in another tip). If children also do not understand why they should do these boring tasks, it is normal for them to drag their feet to accompany you. For comparison, imagine that you are forced to do 50 pushups each morning but without knowing the usefulness of such an exercise. Knowing why (having concrete abs) makes chore useful, if not fun. It is the same for the household: never forget to explain why it is necessary to do this or that task because if it seems to make sense to you, it is not necessarily the same for children . Taking five minutes to explain to your kids why they need to tidy up their desks is not a waste of time. On the contrary ! Not only will they appreciate your explanation, but they will also feel that they are being treated as "grown ups".
Tip 2: set an example
If you leave your things lying around, you don't have the right to ask your children to have their room tidy. To sum up, to have an ordained child, you have to be yourself! You can't moralize about the basket of dirty laundry if your own things are still lying on your bed. Even if you rightly consider that there are differences in treatment (for example your handbag does not store like his sports bag), your child will not have the same vision of things and may find it unfair that you force him to do tasks that you do not apply yourself. So you have the obligation to be beyond reproach , or you risk a family mutiny!
Tip 3: explore the fun side
Hide and seek is not a good idea for a game. Finally, the best advice we can give you is to keep your good mood during the cleaning. Being able to see his mother's smile in a well-cleaned mirror will be enough for the child (yes, if)!
