Why Helping You Clean is Good for Your Child

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Children have a right to a clean house. Cleaning is a basic parental duty, and environments that are filthy affect not only a child’s health, but their self-esteem and their own habits as they grow. Cleaning your house regularly reduces sickness, makes the environment healthy and bright, and actually keeps your most expensive possessions, such as electronics and appliances, in good working order.

Cleaning with parents is a great bonding activity for children. You can make it fun for them by concentrating on all the different devices and products they get to use instead of on the work involved in cleaning. Cleaning can also provide a child with an activity that gives them real responsibility, which can help their self-esteem. Teaching children to clean their own rooms gives them a sense of ownership of their own space and oftentimes a sense of pride, even though they may not be all that excited about doing chores at the time.

Cleaning areas such as the bathroom and kitchen is particularly important to your child’s health. These are the areas of the home most likely to have harmful bacteria that can cause infections. In particular, teach children about cleaning off their toothbrush after they use it, and about washing their hands before they eat or drink.

Between cleaning the house and good personal hygiene, a child will have a much healthier and happier time growing up. Good cleaning habits will carry over to adulthood, as well!
