Tips to clean kids room

When we woke up Monday, it was snowing hard. Jeff planned on doing his taxes in the morning but with the way it was snowing, we decided it wouldn't be a good idea.

Laura snuggled with me in my bed and we watched cartoons. It was so nice to spend that time with her. After we ate breakfast, I helped Laura clean her room. Laura has the smallest room in the house, and it's perfect size for her. The bigger the room, the bigger the mess.

Here are some tips to help a child to clean their room:

- Save your patience and energy. A child can't realistically clean a room totally by themselves. I believe they need some guidance or you will see things squished under the bed or closet.

- Clean the room in sections. If you say you are going to not stop until the room is clean, your child will protest and be overwhelmed. Dealing with it in sections helps a lot.

- Set a time limit before a break or say after you finish a certain section - you can take a break.

- Have fun and put on music. Keep it happy and they are motivated.

- Praise them for the hard work.

- The hardest part is keeping up with it. Ideally, cleaning and organizing should be daily routine. If not daily, try to do it twice a week with your child.

  1. It’s such a great idea to get the kids’ help, Jessica, as I find it almost impossible to keep my kids’ room organized. So much can go on in the four corners of their room when they’re alone! It might help if you’d make their toy storage into something more fun, like these ideas: http://sky-parlour.blogspot.com/2012/03/cute-clever-toy-storage-tips.html. :]

  2. Staff enter and leave through airlocks (sometimes including an air shower stage), and wear protective clothing such as hoods, face masks, gloves, boots and coveralls.
