I could’ve captioned this video in so many ways:
If your kid’s room looks like this…
. Shut the door and walk away.
. Tell them to get off the video games.
. Set it on fire. 🤪
etc. etc. etc.
My boys are asked to clean their room everyday, but when it starts to look like this, it’s beyond the point of a quick tidy!
The solution -a good declutter- isn’t hard, and it doesn’t have to take all day, either.
In just one hour, we got rid of 1 bag of toys, 1 bag of trash, and FIVE bags of clothes!!! 🙌🏻
At first they wanted no part in the purge, but the idea of cleaning their rooms faster and less often, or getting dressed without sifting through the clothes they don’t love was actually contagiously motivating!
Don’t get me wrong, I still have to tell them to pick up their things and clean up their rooms (pretty much daily!) but it’s not nearly as overwhelming for them, so it goes faster and they have more confidence in their ability to do it well.
Any life lesson that teaches responsibility while building confidence is totally worth teaching, don’t ya think?!
How do you teach your kids to care for their things?
And do you declutter you kids’ spaces very often?
Let’s chat about this in the comments - I’d love to know your thoughts!
