During this article, I will give you some tips to make your child’s room perfect to look like a model child’s room. We must find the child’s spirit during house visits, but the disorder is not tolerated. I advise the client put them away and follow small rituals.
It is essential to involve the child in tidying up their room. This has many virtues: more disciplined, more respect for the toys he has, time to play, and time to tidy up…
1- The room must be tidied up very regularly
It is essential to arrange the child’s room in stages rather than once. The reason is simple: this task will be easier to perform and will not be a “chore” to do.
2- Even if the baby is small, involve him in the reorganization
Kindergarten teachers do it, and you can do it too. Your child must participate in the tidying up of the room. This implies rigor, but also contributes to its development.
Final objective: tidying up the room must become one of her tasks when she is older.
3- We Keep This, We Give It Away
Periodically decide together, which toys to keep in the room, store in the basement, and throw away or give away;
4- Don’t miss containers and baskets
If the shelves are not enough to hold everything, buy a container and a basket to store all the games.
You can decide to create with your child labels either with words or drawings (which he will have done himself) to classify the objects better.
And then leave the lower part of the cupboards and shelves free: this will be the special place where he can store the games. And don’t worry if there is chaos there. Remember, this is your space to put everything in order.
5- Everything In Its Place, But Playful
Children under three appreciate the controls, and everything should be in the right place. So, use this principle! Teach your daughter that you should put them back to sleep in their unique doll beds or particular bins after playing with dolls.
For the boys, the cars are parked in the “garage” on the windowsill. Make it a game. You can use construction equipment such as cranes, trucks, cement mixers to store.
You have to tidy up the site close it so that no one enters your child’s empire.
Your child may have to say (or be more imaginative than you) to find an alternative place to store the different games, but the important thing is that everyone has their own.
If the child is small, do not let him do all the work, but help him (be careful only to help him and not do the work for him, even if he complains and tries to keep himself waiting).
6- A toy is taken = A toy put away
Anyone who has taken a toy to play with must put it away before they can take another.
7- When the play/game is over, everything is put back in its place
You must prepare your child for storage before playing. The goal is that it is conditioned to storage from an early age. Thus, before playing, it must be prepared.
When you start a game, remember that everything should be perfect in the end, and you will tidy up together. Remember 15 minutes before you finish it.
8- Praise your child!!!!
Has the child put everything in order? Compliment him by saying “BRAVO” or a little hug.
9- Toys Sleep Too
Something to make him understand the meaning of tidying up? Try telling her that even toys have to go to bed and they need a place. Toys need to rest to be fit for tomorrow.
10- Stick labels
A fun way to find a place for each game. Stick the drawing of the toys they should contain on boxes, shelves, baskets, and cupboards.
The child can make the drawing so that he is proud of his work. This may encourage him to tidy up. Children more easily perceive drawings than words.
The drawings are more easily assimilated by the child when he is small than when he is older; he has them replaced by words (we go to the writing stage).
11- Not only does the bedroom have to be tidy, but you don’t have to do everything
Children should get used to staying clean at home. Storing objects are the step. Thus, little by little, it will be easier for you and for him to organize pajama parties between children at your home, but also with friends. Do not be at the service of your children!!!!
In the beginning, here are just a few simple rules:
- Jackets and shoes are placed in the closet and the shoe cabinet;
- Bags and backpacks in the bedroom;
- Every day, dirty clothes must go to the laundry basket;
