Tidying with children
as a way to connect
Tidying... Are you tired of sounding like a broken record or doing it all yourself? It doesn't have to be this way. Tidying does not need to be this boring, dreaded thing that you fall out over. It can be quality time. Maybe even a fun time.
The trick is to shift your focus from getting the task done to understanding your child's relationship with their things. It can offer many opportunities for conversations about what they like, what they are interested in, and what is important to them. When you approach tidying this way, the tidier room and your children learning some basic tidying skills come as a nice side benefit. I recorded a quick about how I got to see tidying this way.
