Kids in Training: Keeping a Room Clean and Orderly! Giveaway and Free Printable

clean room giveaway poster

I know I’m not the only who has struggled with trying to help my kids keep their rooms clean! It was a constant battle and frustration in my home. I would often give up and clean it myself but the reality of them missing out on this important life lesson and skill finally won me over and I had to come up with a better plan!

In my e-book “Kids in Training” I drive head first into this very topic and share how we turned a corner when it came to conquering the bedroom clutter and keeping it clean! Can you believe after I put a few new daily responsibilities into action that my 9 and 7 year old daughters have been able to keep a spotless room for over 4 months in a row!!! CRAZY, I know!

It all came down to making them responsible, minimal daily pick up and seeing the potential that their personal space had hidden under all the piles and mess!

My girls do a few thing EVERY single day. By keeping on top of it they are never left with the daunting task of cleaning a disaster zone. I share our tips and tricks in Chapter 1 of “Kids in Training: Life lessons that will help lead to productive, responsible and grateful kids!” Keeping a room clean and orderly becomes totally manageable for little ones with a little direction, motivation and organization.

I’ve created a few fun chore charts that you can use to help your kids stay on top of their bedroom responsibilities! Help them identify a few daily tasks that will help them keep a clean room. By seeing what they need to do and marking it off when it’s done, they will feel the pride that comes with being responsible. I also talk about fun incentives and rewards for their continual hard work.

These weekly chore charts are great for helping your kids keep track of their progress! Insert daily bedroom chores on the blank lines and have them mark them off as they accomplish their chore! Things to consider putting on the charts…

Clean Desk

Clean Dresser

Clean floor

Clean closet

Customize it to your kids room needs or areas that have been a struggle. If they have had a hard time keeping books in order add that chore to the daily list! Doing 5-10 minutes of daily work will totally help keep a space in order!

    Speak my mind?? OK. I”ve been following you for a while and generally enjoy your posts. But today I happen to disagree with the whole thought of training your child to keep their rooms “spotless”. In my thinking it’s more for Mom than for the kid. Their rooms should be just that…their rooms. The one small corner of the world where they can express themselves with out other’s interference. OH, I believe in chores…my kids do plenty. And we do occasionally need to have their rooms in “spotless” condition. I have three kids who are now teens. Two of the three do keep their rooms pretty clean, because that is the way they like it, not because they have been trained to do so. The other…well, there’s hope for her in other areas of her life. : ) As your kids grow, you undoubtedly will find them rebelling against all the training. And you will wonder where you went wrong. My mother always told me, “Choose your battles carefully, the time when they are listening is very brief.”

      That’s the best part!! No longer is it a battle to fight with my kids over a messy room. It’s not just about a messy room. It was about not being able to find important things, not having a space that they enjoyed, and being late because they were always looking for something. Having a clean room has eliminated all of those battles and now we all enjoy the small effort it takes to keep up on it. My girls have that personal space you described to make their own. Their room doesn’t look like a page out of a magazine. Walls are covered with their art work, book cases are filled with favorite books, Desks have cups of pens and markers and paper ready for a creative moment. Their dresser it topped with their favorite trinkets and treasures but it’s all in order and neatly accessible. They can have friends over and a space to entertain them. It has changed the way they enjoy that special space! The benefits are incredible and I’ll proudly support the encouragement of helping my kids keep a clean room because I am seeing the pride they have taken in this new standard.
