Tips for Kids to Help Clean
Getting Kids to Help with Cleaning
When school starts back up, it's more important than ever to have your kids organized and focused. And that includes having an organized room to complete their homework.
In this video, Molly Maid of Northwest Seattle owner Jim Diven appears on KOMO-TV-Seattle to share some tips on how to help your kids organize their rooms for back to school, and how to motivate them to help with weekly cleaning chores.
How It's Done
First, empower kids to organize by giving them bins and containers to store their toys, hobby materials, clothes and other items that contribute to clutter. Then find out what motivates them, and use that to establish a cleaning routine that makes them regular, valuable contributors to cleaning the house.
Kids can stay focused on rewards and the jobs you task them with by posting a chore chart. It will give them a sense of mission at the onset and a sense of satisfaction when the chores are completed.
