Often parents believe their children are unable to perform basic chores on their own, so they automatically jump in and do everything for them. But this is a big mistake! They should let the kids organize toys themselves and eliminate clutter they made on their own. Although seemingly a little thing, this contributes to forming a child’s personality. It also provides the child with work habits that will facilitate their life in the future!
When children participate in household chores, they learn how to organize their belongings in life. If our children organize toys and put those in the appropriate storage boxes, after play, without our help, it will positively contribute to their personality formation.
The side effect of teaching this well is a tidier house and fewer foot injuries when you step on those little plastic pieces that didn’t make it back in the bin!
