It always important to take the time and teach children the importance of having responsibilities and the importance that it is to do them each and every day. Some of the basic responsibilities that children need to learn at a young age is how to do simple chores around the house. This is something that should be taught at a young age because it will help them master the skill and the ability to know that whenever they are done playing or whenever they have made a mess, it is always necessary to clean it up.
Some parents and teachers have started teaching this skill by playing some nursery rhymes while the children pick up their toys and their mess. Playing a song while the children pick up their mess can be helpful and serve them as a reminder that it time to clean up and that it needs to done during that time. There are many kids songs that are helpful when it comes to cleaning up and there are also many nursery rhymes that are meant to help children master this skill.
Children need direction and they need to be told what to do. For example, when you ask your child to clean up their room you need to be more specific and say something like “Can you please put all of your books back on the shelf?” or “Can you please do your bed?” There are many kid songs that sing about doing the bed and picking up toys and if children listen to these songs then they will be more likely to be motivated to do it and in the future they will know when it is time to do it on their own.
It is also important to keep in mind that children will not know how to do everything perfectly and that it is perfectly fine if they mess up or if they do not know how to some of their chores. It is crucial to keep in mind that we should not get mad or yell at them as this can discourage them and later on it will be harder to get them to do it again. Take the time to listen to some kids songs and some nursery rhymes so that you can choose out the ones that you think will be able to benefit your children the most. You can later on even make a playlist and just put on the songs that you would like them to hear as they clean up their room or throw out the trash.
The most important thing about this process is to make sure to be patient and to be kind to them. It is also very important to make this a habit so that they can get into a routine. It is a skill that will help them grow and become responsible+ in life.
