Kids can be both a blessing and a curse. I have a couple and love them to death but at the same time they can be quite messy and there is a lot of cleanup involved.
Types Of Mess They Make
There are many types of mess that the little rugrats make, way too many to list them all so I’ll just go over a few of the most common ones.
This one is by far the most common in my opinion. It seems that anytime there’s a possibility for them to stain the freshly cleaned carpet they will. From food and drinks to mud and dirt, they all leave stains that sometimes are extremely tough to get out. If you find that you can’t get them out yourself then just call a carpet cleaning company and they will make it so much easier for you as they have the proper tools to deal with these stains. If you happen to be looking for carpet cleaning services in Huntersville NC then I have heard good things about those guys from other families.
Dinnertime can be a great time to relax with the family but the little ones can make it a war zone. Throwing food and making food end up on the ground are pretty normal. Time to stock up on bibs and pray for the best. You can try and play games to make them eat their food normally, or give some kind of incentive such as a dessert later.
Room Mess And Clutter
No matter how many times they are told to put their toys away after using them it never seems to happen. The toy chest sits there collecting dust for ages it seems. It does take a long time to form habits but you have to start sometime, so I would recommend to start right away with making it a habit for your kids to put things away after they’re done with them and eventually they should catch on.
What’s The Solution?
I highly suggest checking out the video and implementing some of the advice. Basically anything that makes cleaning fun will highly increase the chances of kids participating in it. You could make it into a race for example, with a reward for the first one to finish. This is a sure fire way to speed them up. Another way to make cleaning more fun would be to do role playing, like pretending to act out a movie or something.
Anyways that ends my rant for today. Good luck everyone!
