Many families struggle with being able to keep their home in order. Keeping a neat, and organized home can be accomplished if you get the support, and help of the entire family. I have found that bedtime chores can really help to keep your home in the right order. Below you will find a list of ways how bedtime chores can help them to maintain order in their home.
Everyone gets a list
It is best to start by making sure that everyone gets a list of what needs to be done by him, or her. Even the younger children in the house should have a chore list. Little kids will really enjoy having a list that they can check off as they complete tasks. Even adults will find that making a list will help them to get all of their chores done.
Make it fun
Making it fun will help to get all of the chores done. Just like family game night, why not make every night family clean up night. If you start this when your children are young, they will get used t the routine. You can even make it fun by calling out the chores, and setting a time to see how quickly the chores can be done. By making it fun, your kids will look forward to their clean up bedtime routine.
Keep it simple
Of course, you do not want to do a deep two-hour cleaning each night. Just having the kids pick up and put away their own things. Even the adults can put away their items that they may have left out. Getting the kids involved in cleaning up the dishes from the day can prove to be useful. You can have the kids dry the dishes off after you have washed them. Teach the kids a little bit of teamwork. Working together as a family will help to build up close bonds within the family.
The benefits of having the entire family work together to keep a clean home are many. Every morning when your family wakes up you will see a tidy home. This really makes for a happier family, and if guests suddenly stop by you will not need to rush around cleaning, and straightening up. Instead, you can comfortably invite friends into your home without feeling embarrassed. You will also be teaching your children to be clean happy people.
