- Remember that your kids are going to make messes, but they can help with your cleaning routine as well! It’s never too early to teach them how to do chores around the home. Many kids feel excited when they get to work alongside you and you’re showing confidence in their ability to help.
- Remember that every day isn’t cleaning day. It’s just daily maintenance.
