How can I keep my house clean with children?

Avoid Clean Up Battles

Everybody has bad days, even toddlers. If a child does not want to do a particular chore one day, be flexible. The goal is to have a clean house. Ask what he or she will do instead. It might surprise you what he or she would be willing to do to avoid the dreaded task of the day. Don't expect perfection from toddlers. Use some humor. Be helpful.
