At what age should the kids be helping clean their rooms? And at what age can they clean their rooms alone?
It is a constant battle to get both of mine to clean their room. I do the clothes since I am very picky about there they go and how they go, but as for toys that is all them...however long it takes them. Now as for making there beds...they way their beds are designed it is not easy so they do the best they can.
4-5 make him pick up his own toys in the family room and he helps me load the dishwaher and unload, he does that happily, he cleans his room too on his own now, cleaning the room can be a task, because he hates doing that.
They can help at 2 . They can clean their room a lone at 4
my dd cleans her room and has been since 3 yrs. I tell her you put it there? You pick it up... so its been drilled in her and we also played clean up time together and now she does it by her lonesome :)
I've had mine cleaning his since he was about 3.5/4. Now he does it on his own.
Mine cleans her room alone, makes bed and everything and has been since 4
Quoting GGsMommy07:Since my daughter was old enough to walk I taught her to put her toys back in her toy box
She even makes her bed now
