One of the 8 keys to a clean home  is to get your children to help. While some children are more eager to clean than others, getting them to clean does not have to involve a tug-of-war.

Here are 3 ways to get the kids to help with cleaning.

1. Get Started Early

Think a toddler is too young to help? Think again. In her Growing a Jeweled Rose blog, Crystal Underwood lists 17 household chores that are a right fit for a toddler.

2. Make it Fun

You’ll be surprised to find that your children, especially the younger ones, find some house cleaning chores fun. It helps them feel as if they are “big” to be able to help Mom and Dad. Find other ways to make house cleaning chores a game.

3. Give Rewards

Create a reward system to encourage good work. Be creative. Rewards don’t have to be money, they can be fun outings or treats.

There’s no reason you have to shoulder the entire burden of a clean home. In addition to hiring a professional cleaning service, get the kids to pitch in. After all, they live there too!
