This post is for all the MOMS out there!
As a parent, there are several hard teaching moments, but one of the ones that you feel like you're always nagging upon is cleaning. Picking up toys, putting them back where they found them and in the RIGHT place. And explaining where the toys belong. Then cleaning up spills, dropped food, etc. It seems never ending!
This is definitely an area where we struggle. We want the child to learn but sometimes it's easier and faster to do it yourself.
One of the things that we do with our son is make it a game. My son loves anything that's a race. So using a timer to see how many toys he can pick up before the timer goes off is a fun game for him. Or we jump in too and it's a contest who can pick up the most toys. Or how many toys can we pick up during commercials of his favorite shows.
We also try to encourage donating as part of cleaning. We talk quite a bit about what toys he isn't using anymore. What toys he wants to give to children who don't have toys.
Who wouldn't appreciate a house cleaner? Especially after you host a celebration?
