When you are getting ready to sell your house there is a lot to do and think about, and keeping your home tidy is usually at the top of the list. There is no reason that this should be an adults only job. I found a great way to get the kids on board to help with the everyday messes. Bribery!
If your child can be motivated by money, I will give each of your children $50 for keeping their rooms clean, coats hung, toothpaste cleaned out of the sink and evidence of play, snack and homework gone for all showings. Kids usually respond positively and clean after themselves, I am not their parent, they listen to me! I will also check in to make sure they have done their part and am always happy to talk to them directly if they need a little extra push in the right direction. Trust me, it works!
