Step by Step

You might think asking your child to clean up is enough, but it's important to provide step-by-step directions so she understands exactly what's expected of her — especially with younger kids. And you may have to model a task a few times before she finally figures it out. Once she's successfully washed the dishes or found the right spot for her toys, she'll have a wonderful sense of accomplishment that internally encourages her to do it again.
