Second, Develop Habit
If you’re going to raise tidy children, it’s best to start as early as possible, set clear expectations, and designate cleaning times. Form a routine and stick with it to build a lasting habit.
This particular mommy blogger instructs her little ones to make their bed before they come to the breakfast table. She also abides by an evening sweep. Every night, just before bedtime, set a timer for 5-15 minutes for a quick cleanup to help keep the clutter under control on a nightly basis. You can also use this method a few times throughout the day to prevent a mass buildup of junk to tackle later.
By implementing a quick, daily cleaning sesh, your children will develop the habit of keeping things clean and grow accustomed to tidy spaces.
