Author Dana White of A Slob Comes Clean tackles teaching cleaning to children in her latest book that is free* today on Amazon! Teaching Kids to Clean is a cute yet detailed book on teaching our children how to care for themselves by taking care of their surroundings.
Chores at our house were assigned by age, not gender. Our girls learned home maintenance and our boys learned to dust, cook and mop the floor. It was important for us to know our children would be able to either maintain a home or help their spouses when they were no longer under our roof. This book contains lesson plans, printable instructions and helpful checklists.
Cleaning skills are life skills. One day your child will be living on his own and in order to function, he’ll need to know how to hold a broom properly. Why not teach these skills now so you can one day rest easily knowing that the state of his bachelor-pad-toilet isn’t because you never taught him how to clean it?!
This e-book contains advice and tools to help you teach your children to clean. Whatever your schedule, whatever the state of your home, you can use these checklists, charts, and ideas as resources to help you in your job as a parent who strives to prepare kids for life.
Based on my experiences teaching my own kids to clean, Teaching Kids to Clean contains general advice for teaching your kids to clean as well as lesson plans, printable instructions/checklists, lists of age-appropriate tasks, and ideas for making things fun for four basic cleaning tasks in your home.
The tasks include laundry, bathroom cleaning, dusting, vacuuming and mopping.
With your Kindle purchase, you’ll gain access to the printable checklists and charts from this e-book.
If you are looking for help or a simple way to get your children started on cleaning, this would be a great little book.
