In a house, everyone must contribute to its maintenance in the cleaning work. Reaching equal collaboration is necessary for the functioning of the home, and for these domestic tasks to be tackled by all family members, there must be a routine. In addition, the fact that children learn to do their tasks has multiple benefits for them at the time they develop them and also for the future.
1. Collaboration capacity: When a child also participates, depending on his age, in housework, the greatest advantage that he will find will be the ability to collaborate. When you feel part of a team, you will learn to listen to instructions, to work side by side on the assigned task, and to love strive to do my best. Therefore, two fundamental values are worked on: effort and collaboration.
2. Teamwork: It is evident that a child is not going to do household chores alone, and that he will be a collaborating agent with the rest of the family members, who will carry the bulk of the work. However, if you feel part of the 'cleaning team' and taken into account like others, be it parents or older siblings, this will allow you to know how to work with more people, both at home and outside of it. Learning to work in a team is possible, and it is only achieved with practice in small daily obligations. By the way, the child will feel 'valued' and important.
3. Hygiene: The order and cleanliness of the home contributes to the hygiene of its members. For this reason, when a child collaborates in the tasks of cleaning a house, this cleaning will also translate itself and will manage to find a personal hygiene routine.
4. Motivation: Helping at home can be seen as an obligation, or indeed as a collaboration. When the child internalizes that his task is being help and value for your parents and your own home, you will be motivated to do them with all your effort. Motivation is important because they will feel it as soon as the rest of the family members congratulate you on your task, which you will see compensated by how good your home looks when the housework is done thanks to your collaboration.
5. Order: Cleaning the dust, sweeping, keeping toys in their room, not leaving all the items in their room lying around ... There are many household chores in which a child can collaborate depending on their age, but the most important is that if cleaning and cleaning is in your routine, your mind will also be structured and you will become a more orderly person. The ability to order your items will also make you more disciplined when it comes to having everything collected and that will increase your ability to demand at home for personal use and enjoyment and the rest of the family.
6. Discipline: It goes hand in hand with order, since the fact that collaboration at home becomes a habit can change the concept of being at home, helping everything to be in perfect condition. Striving in the order and cleanliness of the assigned tasks will help their discipline not only at school, but also at home, also feeling more 'older', like the other members who perform them.
7. Responsibility. The child will feel responsible for his tasks. The house works thanks to all its pieces, and he identifies himself as one of the 'pieces' in that great whole. Therefore, little by little he will feel the need to 'not disappoint' the rest, understanding that only he is responsible for his tasks and that what he does will affect the rest.
