Super Tips For Getting The Kids To Clean Their Rooms

Super Tips For Getting The Kids To Clean Their Rooms

When it comes to personal space, bedrooms are a kid's first real step into the world of their own domain. It's meant to be theirs, so why do they have to keep it tidy if they don't want to? It's a battle waged across all houses, and most parents have at least one child who prefers to live in their own 'personalised' space. But then, how often does this happen to you?  You ask your children to clean their rooms, and when you go to check on them, you find that they have done almost nothing.

Well, it happens to most parents, in fact all parents. When you saturated a place with peace and order, it provides welcome relief into a chaotic world. This implies that teaching your children to keep their rooms clean not only provides them with a comfortable safe haven, but also helps him/her to learn how to establish a regular routine and order, understand responsibility for possessions and prepares them for management of adult responsibilities

When it comes to getting things done, we are not all created equal! The same applies to children. Often times, they do not quite know how to go about cleaning their rooms. The whole purpose behind teaching them the important life skill of cleaning their room is that they will learn about keeping things in order to be able to find them when they need them, to establish routine, to keep things organised, and responsibility for their own, and other people's property.

Hence, knowing the advantageous fulfillment that comes from keeping your kids bedroom, it is worth the effort to make sure they learn this important responsibility. There are however, few working strategies that will help your kids clear their clutter and rediscover that they do have a floor under that mess. Incorporating these magic super tips for getting the kids to clean their rooms will get you real results and reduce the frustrations that come with messy rooms. Taking the time to implement these tips will ensure they have a great place to go to at the end of a stressful day. Don't think you have to implement all at once. However, start with one and implement a new tip each week. It might take you a little longer to create your oasis, but you'll be making progress towards neat bedrooms for your kids.

First, teaching kids to clean their rooms doesn't work if you do not set an example of being downright determined to keep a tidy house. Kids pay more attention to what their parents do than what they say. You need to let them understand though your actions the importance of a less cluttered home with regards to the health and safety of the family. If you take pride in keeping everything in order and organized and do so on a daily basis, this behaviour will become what your children will believe that this is expected and normal. At the same time, give them direction so they can get in the habit of recognizing what needs to be done to get the room clean. Keep your expectations reasonable and show them how it’s done. In a longtime, they will master the skills and no longer need step-by-step encouragement.

Kids who feel their space is specially their own (whether a whole room or a corner or a shelf) are more likely to want to keep it nice. It is important to have a sense of pride in one's space and contribute to a clean and orderly family environment. This is especially true for kids who share rooms with siblings or other family members. Let your kid or teenager know that you expect them to clean their room to a certain standard, but let them control all other facets. It's their space, but it's your home. Find ways to give them some control over how their space looks and where things are kept. For instance, let them choose the decor, bed sheets, etc., and let them rearrange the furniture. This gives your child responsibility for the space they pulled together and might encourage them to put in more effort to keep it nice. Provide them with plenty of storage in the form of chest of drawers, ottomans, wardrobes, and closet space. It helps a lot if everything has a home. Give them boxes and bins, work together at labeling and deciding what goes where.  Kids may not know where every little toy should be placed. But with baskets, clean up is a cinch and all they have to do is put their toys in the baskets. Make sure they have colourful baskets or even a movable trundle to store toys and other belongings.    

Make cleaning their rooms fun to carry out. You’ve heard the term, "work smarter, not harder." Motivate your children to get their rooms clean and keep them clean. Aim to use their curiosity to inspire action. You can place a price for the fastest kid to completely clean his/her room.

At some point, you will have to get rid of excess stuff. Kids are like little stuff magnets, always bringing in a constant trail of toys and papers and clothes and shoes and if as a parent you are not careful and mindful of these practices, their room will fill up quickly with dirt. This surmises that toys are to be kept to a minimum while clothes & shoes that are out of season or no longer fit should be put in a storage box or sent out to charity.

As parents, our job is to provide these little ones with the skills and opportunities they need to grow. It's not your job to clean your children's rooms, it's theirs. It may be easier, but it's better for them to learn to clean and take care of their things. Kids especially teenagers will want to make their own choices and they’re going to make the wrong ones at times, which is part of growing up. As long as you provide them with the necessary "tools" to take care of themselves and their space, teach them problem-solving skills, use rewards and consequences for motivation, and hold them accountable, everything is going to work out eventually.
