With patience, with a smile, with motivation.
It’s good to teach children to tidy their things from an early age. Little heroes love to be given tasks which are usually done by adults. When they’re five, they like to be involved in any household activity because it makes them feel big and self-sufficient.
You can motivate your child to keep things tidy by helping them design their own room in a unique way. Give them magazines with ideas and suggest they work out a way to furnish their own rooms. Buy the furniture and accessories your children choose, and put up posters of their favourite stars. In this way you will create an atmosphere where your child will feel comfortable and which will reflect their personality. When your child is allowed to use their creativity in arranging and decorating their room, they will enjoy the pleasure of keeping it tidy clean and tidy.
Another motivating factor is friends. When their friends come to visit, children enthusiastically tidy their rooms and help with the cleaning and shopping. Motivation is important. Children enjoy the prospect of inviting friends, so they don’t find tidying a burden.
Above all, you must assume that your child’s room is their personal space. Tidying must not be an imposition but a conscious choice. You also have to accept that a messy room is a test of your tolerance and patience.
