Crank some tunes or sing a silly song, and get cleaning! Along with making tidying up seem less like a chore, it gets everyone moving and working together. And offering your child options to choose from, such as either dusting or sweeping, is also a smart motivator. This way he'll feel a pride of place once finished. Make sure to offer positive praise, such as, "The living room looks so nice since you swept the floor! Don't you love how clean it looks?"
