It will be time for the kids to head back to school before you know it. Now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to teach them skills that will help them this year and throughout their lifetime. Having maid cleaning in McKinney is a simple way to give your child’s room a new look while you teach them how to keep up that progress through the coming year.
Most of us keep a list of things we need to get done this year, month, week, day and sometimes hour- often all in our head! For your child (and sometimes us) putting it on paper and into practice helps to see the time and planning needed to get tasks done.
• Teach them to keep a Calendar
One of the first introductions should be to time. Have them keep a calendar with daily tasks, cleaning chores, assignments, appointments and due dates listed out. Incorporate a to-do list either on the calendar or next to it.
• Do the List
The best introduction to a to-do list is to make one with boxes for them to check off things as they get them done. There can be a lot of motivation behind the physical act of checking off the box and feeling that sense of accomplishment. They will also feel that sense of completion when they find out how easy it is to keep things put away after the maid cleaning has made their room sparkle.
• See What Worked
Keeping track of what needed to be done and what actually got done will help them see what needed to be done first to make everything happen the way it is supposed to. Don’t fret if this does not work the first time. It would be wonderful if something got missed.
That experience would teach them to prioritize and how to rearrange things to make something work after the first attempt failed.
• Journal It
If they are having trouble completing the tasks on a daily basis it might become necessary to create a time journal so that they can see how they are spending it and where it gets wasted.
• Plan Ahead
This will be crucial because the next step will be to plan for bigger projects in advance. This could be anything from getting their ideas prepared for an in-class presentation to figuring out a better way to clean and organize their closet.
You want to show them how to list the steps that need to be taken along with problems that might come up or any special ideas they want to make sure to include. This breakdown will help them see a larger project not as an insurmountable obstacle but a group of smaller steps that will result in a great accomplishment when complete.
When Needed: Ask for Help
Once they have tackled a project like organizing their closet. It will be easier for them to see how their room could be organized to the way they would feel most comfortable keeping up with things. But sometimes those are the projects that they might need some help with.
One of the best ways to show them what can be done in a short period of time with the proper method is to have it modeled for them. This might be an ideal time to see if Jericho Cleaning Services could offer a hand to give the room a fresh start and show your child what is possible when you give a little attention to everything from top to bottom.
