It’s the same story in every household every morning! ‘Come on Kids, it is time to clean up your rooms’ The kids whine, make excuses, feel tired early in the morning or outrightly refuse. The reminders turn into threats as the day passes by ‘Clear the mess NOW or no more outings for you’, but to no avail! So, here are a few tips that may help in this endeavor.

1. Define a place for every item in the room

Books on the shelf, shoes in the drawer, clothes in the closet, toys in the toy box. When you define a place for every item in the room, you set a goal in the kids mind. They do not dump things in a corner. They know exactly where to keep what and it becomes easy to put things in order.

2. Initially, clear the mess together

Play a game. ‘Let’s see who can put those toys in the toy box first’ and watch your kids doing it better and faster than you can even imagine! ‘Help me dust your bed and lay the sheet properly’ and kids feel Mom wants my help so why not? When you clear the mess together, you make kids feel that Mom cares. You also guide on how to keep the room tidy.

3. Encourage your kid

Tell your kid ‘good job done’ when the mess is cleared! Appreciate the effort they are putting in. When guests come with their kids, tell them how your kid keeps everything back in its place. These words of encouragement will motivate them to do far better next time. Kids are very sensitive to their belongings. They want their corner to look the best. Make them feel proud of their clean space.

4. Practice what you Preach

You cannot expect children to keep their rooms and stuff tidy if you as parents do not instill the same habit! Children are far more responsive to your actions than to your words. When they see your stuff in order, they are encouraged to do the same with their belongings.
