Cleaning...it is a task that many of us dread. It is never ending, and when you let it go it takes twice as long.
I found some interesting blog posts about keeping a clean house WITH KIDS and not feeling overwhelmed.
Cleaning doesn't have to be a dreaded task. Coming up with a schedule that works for you and your family will help diminish that hatred of cleaning.
It is important to get your children involved in cleaning also. So, maybe they don't clean it exactly the way that you want it to be done, but that is okay. Including your children in the daily chores will make them more responsible for their own belongings, and make them want to pick up after themselves because they won't want more work for themselves either. If you are picky about the way your house is cleaned, then find chores that you are okay with having the children do that won't bother you as much.
Cheers to a clean house!
