Housecleaning Habits to Teach Your Kids


Don’t Put it Off

The more you put off cleaning, the dirtier your home gets and the harder it is to clean. This holds true for kid-size messes, too! Teach little ones to pick up dishes from the dinner table after the meal, tidy the bathroom when they’re done washing their hands or brushing their teeth, and put supplies away after finishing a craft project.
