Role Models

Starting around age 3.5, kids can start helping around the house. Whether it be folding dishtowels or wiping a sink or putting stuff into the garbage can, children can learn so much from you as parents.

So be good role models and if you can’t or are feeling overwhelmed, ask for help from a professional such as myself or from friends or family members.

Your children will learn how to keep house from what they see so try your best to let them see consistent behaviours.
Also, you might think it is easy to do the laundry or dishes or fold clothes, but all these things need to be taught to your children.

Probably one of the most important things to teach is to always put things back where they belong. Good luck!
