Its summer, and if you are like many of us, your main focus is keeping those kiddos busy while still maintaining a semblance of a clean house. Let face it: Kids and chores are a recipe for headaches.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your home clean through the summer.
1. Set a standard to live by. Summer is about fun, so why waste your entire time worried about every aspect of your home?Compromise with your family. Set a realistic goal for cleanliness this summer, and let it be.
2. Set rewards. Use a reward system to keep your kiddos engaged in the process. We love http://ourhomeapp.com/
. This app is perfect for keeping the kids on track. We have been using this in our house for years, and it gives us the ability to keep things clean. On top of that, it gives us a way to give the kids some screen time without going overboard, by setting up a points system. They earn 500 points, and those screen-starved kids get 1 hour of screen time.
3. Enjoy your summer. I cannot say anything else to add to this. Summer is short, and the kids are growing. Have fun. The mess will always be there. Kids should be your priority, because 20 years from now they aren't going to remember if you were a great housekeeper or not, but that day you spent eating ice cream and learning how to juggle will stick with them always.
Don't forget if you need help catching up on the mess call at Dignity Home Services. We can send out a Detail House Cleaning team to help you get back on track so you can make your own tracks with our in the mud and sand.
