Simplifying kid's room cleaning
"Clean your room" can be an overwhelming request when the mess is big and the kid is little. It's so easy to get distracted by a rediscovered toy...it's so hard to figure out where everything goes...I'm hungry...
Here's a hack I use myself when housecleaning (when I remember it, and am not distracted by the pile of magazines I just uncovered): start in one corner of the the room, pick up and put away what's there, and when that corner is clean, begin to work your way around the rest of the room. Modify slightly if the room is big or shared, but, in general, teaching kids to focus on a particular spot in the room helps break a big, scary task into something more manageable.
What are your "clean your room" hacks?
