Parents need to make sure that the kids learn to stay tidy and clean. You have to make them know that cleanliness is a part of a good lifestyle. Here are few smart tips to make your kids learn how to stay tidy and clean.
Tips to raise tidy kids with fun:
Bring interest: It is very important to bring the interest of your kid towards cleaning. You can make any household chore a fun filled game if you bring the right interest of your kids towards the task. Show them how cleanliness helps in reducing more unwanted work. For example, kids take out clothes carelessly from the shelf and the whole heap falls down. They will dump it inside the space and once when they do not get the clothes, the kids will have to re-arrange the wardrobe. By taking out clothes in the right format will not add the unwanted extra work. Set examples and explain if your kid is too stubborn to get interest.
You become the mentor: A kid learns from what his or her parents do. If you will not have the interest then how will your kid develop a likeness towards it? If you stay clean and tidy, your kid will also follow on your footsteps. So, make sure that you do not take an unclean kids room lightly. Always maintain a clean house and if your kid is spoiling your hard effort, scold and explain them. You have to be very strict and particular from your side. This tip will help you raise tidy and clean kids.
Make it a task: Do not be lazy! Get off the couch and start listing down days when you have to clean the house with your kids. Involvement is very important to make your kids learn the importance of cleaning. When you are working, ask your kid to help you in the task. While doing it, try to build an interest of the kids towards it and see wonders happen! You can make this a task on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Do not be strict or else the kid might become stubborn.
